The 90th iteration of the Oscars has come and gone, and while predictable, subtle nods to the Time’s Up movement and Parkland shooting were sprinkled throughout the night. In general, the award show glided along sans drama, and avoiding any disastrous La La Land-esque mix up, the Oscar for best picture went to The Shape of Water.
Fans across the Twittersphere celebrated the flick.
I DONT WANNA SEE NONE OF YOU BITCHES SAYING HOW THE SHAPE OF WATER DIDNT DESERVE THAT OSCAR GUILLERMO DEL TORO WORKED 25 YEARS OF HIS LIFE TO MAKE THAT MOVIE HE DESERVES EVERY INCH OF THAT STATUE AND YOU WILL NOT SLANDER HIM IN ANY WAY pic.twitter.com/yCCBbSCsbI— gabi (@harleivy) March 5, 2018
Seriously though. Shape of Water was great and just an enjoyable and magical film. We don't have enough of those winning best pictures. I'm okay with this.— Goat Jesus (@TrueGoatJesus) March 5, 2018
Some were just glad it wasn’t Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
the only movie i could stand beating get out was the shape of water— Dora MilAshley (@tokenblackchick) March 5, 2018
literally the only thing i could stand
so i'm ok
Others were disappointed.
We will look back on 2017 and think that Get Out was the best movie and not The Shape of Water. I can promise you that.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) March 5, 2018
The Shape of Water sucked, I wish Warren Beatty had just said The Florida Project and ran off stage #Oscars— Matt Oswalt (@MattOswaltVA) March 5, 2018
And a lot of people just made fish jokes.

The film swept the award show, taking home three other Oscars including best production design, best score, and best director, which went to Guillermo del Toro.
