  • From Gary Oldman to Allison Janney, here's who won big on the night...

    The Oscars 2018 took place just hours ago, held this year in LA’s Dolby Theatre and hosted by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

    Jimmy’s opening monologue set the tone of the night, addressing the #MeToo movement and calling for change, with A-list award-winners then following suit, using their acceptance speeches to call out gender inequality, with Best Actress winner Frances McDormand asking all of the women in the room to stand with her.

    But who won big? And which wins made history?

    From Greta Gerwig’s record-breaking nomination making her the fifth woman ever to be nominated for a Best Director gong to a very surprising Best Picture win from The Shape of Water, here’s everything you need to know…
