A Still From The Movie Darkest Hour

Gary Oldman took home gold for his performance as Winston Churchill in the historical drama "Darkest Hour" at the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night.

Actor Gary Oldman and wife Gisele Schmidt attend the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on January 21, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. "Get Out" won the Academy Award for best original screenplay, and Pixar's "Coco" won for Best Animated Feature.

"The Academy kicked him out and after they did I was curious so I looked it up, the only other person to be expelled was a character actor called Carmine Caridi, in 2004, who was kicked out for sharing screeners". Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight.

Accepting the award, Tsuji thanked Oldman, saying, "It was a real honor to be on this incredible journey with you, and we would not be standing here today if it wasn't for you". "She said he then grabbed her by the neck, bent her over a chair and violated her as she cried and protested", wrote Sylvia Moreno for The Washington Post in 2004. The 60-year-old actress was competing against Sally Hawkins, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan and Meryl Streep.

Amid backlash from economists, national security experts and foreign leaders, Trump defended his position on Twitter . Trump said firm action was crucial to protect US industry from unfair competition and to bolster national security .

McDormand was born in Gibson City, Illinois on June 23, 1957. She started her career onstage and has retained her association with the theatre throughout her career. " is quirky and endearing - no doubt the most effective part of the film".

Though she herself has shied away from speaking out publicly about her relationship with Oldman ("I find it vulgar to have my private dirty linen washed in public", she told the Daily Mail in 2016), it's hard not to see Manville as the underdog in this particular battle of the exes-especially given how the two actors' careers are typically characterized in the press.

Tsuji also thanked the entire "cast and crew, our family and friends for their fantastic support, and my cats". Since the supporting races weren't added until the ninth ceremony, Oldman, McDormand, Rockwell and Janney aren't the second oldest set of winners overall; that belongs to then-53-year-old Lionel Barrymore ("A Free Soul") and then-63-year-old Marie Dressler ("Min and Bill"), whose average age was 58 at the fourth Oscars.

After the victory at the Oscars 2018, the golden run is now complete for Oldman. It was his first Oscar after being nominated only once before - for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy in 2012. The veteran actor nailed Churchill's voice and his mannerisms, and it didn't hurt that the makeup team physically transformed Oldman into one of the most recognizable men of WWII. But an ace make-up and hair job led by Kazuhiro Tsuji, whose name he suggested to director Joe Wright, made him come on board the project. "He emailed me explaining Darkest Hour, and that if I'm available to do this, he will do this show, but if not, he won't". "There are certain parameters you have to work within because you're playing someone who has lived", Oldman told EW of his transformation into the historical icon. Daniel Kaluuya shines in "Get Out" as he transforms from cool and collected to manic and terrified for his life; his performance externalizes fear in ways that are as unclich├ęd as the film itself.

Oldman had to shave his head and endure four hours of makeup each morning to play Churchill, but the role also appealed because of the chance to play Churchill at the moment he gives his famous "We shall fight on the beaches" speech to Britain's Parliament in 1940.
