If you missed the Oscars last night, let’s catch you up.

‘The Shape of Water’ won Best Picture. Director Guillermo del Toro won best director for the film.

Gary Oldman won best actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in ‘Darkest Hour.’

Frances McDormand took home the Oscar for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Allison Janney won best supporting actress; Sam Rockwell won best supporting actor.

Jordan Peele became the first black writer to win the Oscar for best original screenplay for ‘Get Out.’

#MeToo had its moment in the spotlight when Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and Annabella Sciorra — all three victims of Harvey Weinstein’s abuse — took the stage and introduced a segment highlighting the importance of diversity in film.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted again and everyone — well, most everyone — agrees he did a fine job. In his opening monologue, he poked fun at Mr. Weinstein, Mel Gibson and President Trump. As he should.

We’re still talking about Frances McDormand’s acceptance speech where she asked all the female nominees to stand in the audience and then ended her rallying cry yelling ‘inclusion rider!” What is an ‘inclusion rider’? Backstage McDormand explained that an inclusion rider is a clause that actors can put in their contracts to insist on at least 50% diversity in the film’s cast and crew.

“We’re not going back,” she said in the winners’ room.
