Oscars 2018 : Shape of water director Guillermo del Toro bags best film-maker award
The Shape of water director Guillermo del Toro bags best film-maker award. In his acceptance speech, del Toro said: “I am an immigrant ... The best thing our industry does is to help erase the lines in the sand when the world tries to make them deeper.” This was Del Toro’s first nomination as director and he becomes the third Mexican film-maker in the last five years to win best director. The Shape of Water stars Sally Hawkins as a mute cleaner working in a cold war-era lab facility, who bonds with a sea creature being kept there.
