Guillermo del Toro's inter-species fantasy drama The Shape of Water won the Best Picture Oscar.

The film also helped del Toro win his maiden Oscar in the directing category. The lyrical drama about a mute cleaning lady’s unique bond with a humanoid amphibian, who is a classified government secret, led the 90th Academy Awards, with 13 nominations.

With Sally Hawkins and Doug Jones in the lead, the movie had received massive critical acclaim for its unique handling by the director, who has credited his “childhood monsters” for setting him free.
The film is being called del Toro's best work after his triple-Oscar winning 2007 film Pan’s Labyrinth.
