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.



Some were just glad it wasn’t Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Others were disappointed.

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.
