And the Oscar goes to...

Best Picture

Call Me By Your Name

Darkest Hour

Dunkirk

Get Out

Lady Bird

Phantom Thread

The Post

The Shape of Water

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Why you care: It's the first legit genre movie to win Best Picture in over a decade, since Return of the King. It's a movie about a woman who falls in love with a mysterious fish-man-creature, which is almost exactly the sort of weirdness that the Academy never recognises.

Directing

Dunkirk

Get Out

Lady Bird

Phantom Thread

Guillermo del Toro, The Shape of Water

Why you care: Because Guillermo del Toro is a true nerd. His last film before The Shape of Water was a gothic horror-fantasy, and his last film before that was about people who use giant robots to beat up giant monsters.

Original Screenplay

The Big Sick

Jordan Peele, Get Out

Lady Bird

The Shape of Water

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Why you care: Because Get Out is the movie of the moment, a phenomenal horror film that's about so much more than scares. Also, it's a huge honour for a first-time filmmaker.

Original Score

Dunkirk

Phantom Thread

The Shape of Water

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Why you care: Because it's a big win for a big-time genre movie, even if maaaaybe it wasn't the best choice in the category.

Animated Feature Film

The Boss Baby

The Breadwinner

Coco

Ferdinand

Loving Vincent

Why you care: Obviously, Pixar movies dominate this category because, well, they're Pixar. But the wonderful Coco really did earn this Oscar.

Original Song

"Mighty River", Mudbound

"Mystery of Love", Call Me By Your Name

"Remember Me", Coco

"Stand Up For Something", Marshall

"This Is Me", The Greatest Showman

Why you care: Most people thought The Greatest Showman was going to win, but Pixar pulled out a victory with a moving, catchy song.

Cinematography

Blade Runner 2049

Darkest Hour

Dunkirk

Mudbound

The Shape of Water

Why you care: Roger Deakins, the winner, has been nominated numerous times before and shot some of your favourite movies, including Skyfall, The Big Lebowski and A Beautiful Mind. To see him win for such a major sci-fi film makes it even better.

Visual Effects

Blade Runner 2049

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Kong: Skull Island

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

War for the Planet of the Apes

Why you care: This was a tough category but the winner was one of the most visually impressive films of the year, and a damn good movie, too.

Beauty and the Beast

Blade Runner 2049

Darkest Hour

Dunkirk

The Shape of Water
