Golden Rule: The Oscar Winners

Last night the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences held the 90th annual Academy Awards. We’ve been covering the race and there were some slight surprises. Dunkirk edged out Baby Driver and I, Tonya to take home both Sound Oscars and Editing. The Shape of Water took home Best Picture over Three Billboards. But overall it was slightly predictable.
