Gary Oldman today clinched his career's first Oscar for Best Actor for his life-like portrayal of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the period drama Darkest Hour.

The veteran actor was a spitting image as the UK PM who led Britain to an allied victory in the World War II in the Joe Wrisght-directed film.
“Thanks for this glorious prize. I owe this and much more to so many,” Oldman said in his acceptance speech.


He thanked the cast and crew of his film, Churchill and also gave a shout-out to fellow nominee Denzel Washington. For Oldman, it was his second nomination in the Actor in a Leading Role category. He was previously nominated for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy in 2011.
After the victory at the Oscars 2018, the golden run is now complete for Oldman.
