Guillermo del Toro could have known that he would probably win the Best Picture Academy Award.
His movie The Shape of Water (2017) had 13 nominations, and among them one was almost booked for del Toro.
Never the less, the thrill and happiness that he experienced on 90th Academy Awards show was like he was some kind of an outsider there.
The Shape of Water (2017) won four Oscars: Best Directing, Best Picture, Best Original Score and Best Production Design, making Guillermo del Toro a two-time Oscar winner, on the same night!
Guillermo del Toro was nominated for this prestigious award before, for his movie Pan's Labyrinth (2006).
The Shape of Water (2017) is, by far, his greatest work, praised both by the critics and audiences.
