Best Actor Gary Oldman

  • During the early years of her career Lesley Manville spent two years in the soap Emmerdale

Amusingly, co-presenter Reid, 47, tried to bait Morgan by asking if he was 'accusing him of being a traitor, ' to which he snapped: 'I think Gary Oldman is a very brilliant actor but you should never forget your roots.

The 90th Academy Awards were supposed to celebrate the Time's Up and Me Too movements while empowering women who have been victims of sexual abuse by the powerful men in the entertainment industry. He isn't the only Oscar victor this year with an allegedly violent past.

But you'll probably find that you can relate quite well to Gary Oldman, who last night managed to dent his shiny new Oscars statue before even arriving at the engraving station.

And Kobe Bryant, another first-time victor, took home the trophy for best animated short with Dear Basketball, a six-minute film based on a poem Bryant wrote in 2015 announcing his retirement from the NBA. And she's watching the ceremony from the comfort of her sofa.

Oldman had already picked up awards at the Golden Globes and BAFTAs for Darkest Hour and had been tipped as the favourite for the Oscar.

In addition to that, how did Ryan Seacrest manage to host the Red Carpet despite allegation of sexual misconduct surfacing just days before the Oscars? But some were disturbed to see Oldman win the award on a night that celebrated the empowerment of women with the Time's Up and #MeToo movements taking center stage.

Gulliver Oldman has come to his old man's defense after the Oscar winner's ex-wife's claims of spousal abuse resurfaced in an interview with Daily Mail. That doesn't mean people have stopped talking about the alleged assault and mere second after his name was announced, there was an uproar on the social media that criticized the choice of the best actor. But many tweeted about the rape allegations instead.

Until December past year, The Florida Project was considered an Oscar favourite. Aside from its one nomination for supporting actor Willem Dafoe, The Florida Project didn't get much love from the Academy.

He added that he is neither fond nor accustomed to publicly speaking ill of his mother, but that she had routinely used both him and his brother as pawns in her disputes with Oldman. It's obvious many in Hollywood are willing to honour male artists for their art - regardless of their violent pasts.
