Del Toro, re-checking the Best Film envelope,
“This is to everyone who wants to use Fantasy to tell a real story. You can do it. This Oscar is a door. Kick it in.”
Including Best Film, Del Toro’s vision earned 4 Oscars: Best Director, Production Design, and Original Score (Alexandre Desplat)
Fun fact: Desplat used whistling sounds in the Score to give you an underwater feel throughout. And most of the Fish Man’s breathing was just Del Toro.
Best Film!!! #TheShapeOfWater
