The 59-year-old actor's powerful turn as Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour" earned him the Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role statuette and he appeared emotional as he took to the stage at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre to accept the accolade on Sunday (03.04.18).

People watching along immediately reacted on Twitter to Oldman's win, as well as to accused rapist Kobe Bryant's, who picked up an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.

Oldman underwent hours of makeup to portray Churchill in the film, which focuses on a pivotal time in the British leader's career when he rallied his country to fight the Nazis.

The 90th Academy Awards was a night full of dreams coming true. "But I'm not remotely sour-faced", she said, according to the Press Association. His ex-wife, Donya Fiorentino, accused Oldman of choking her and beating her with a telephone in front of their children, an allegation he denies. "I backed away, with the phone receiver in my hand". In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Gary said they were struggling over the phone, and that it accidentally hit her when he let go.

In 2001, Oldman's manager told the Daily News that Fiorentino's claims were "completely investigated by police and the district attorney's offices".


As for Kobe. he was accused of raping a woman in 2003. The case was eventually dropped after Bryant's accuser refused to testify, with Bryant's defense strategy reliant on questioning the victim's reputation.

Another big win went to Alexandre Desplat, composer of the score for both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Oldman won despite 2001 domestic violence allegations that resurfaced as the actor's Oscar prospects gathered steam.

Yet, even as Oldman racked up all of the earlyawards, making Sunday's win a near-inevitability, the awards season seemed to be shifting in other ways that suggested a more evolved industry post-Weinstein. Celebrities wore all black to the Golden Globes in solidarity with Time's Up - though they quickly abandoned the dress code at the ensuing awards.

The 94%: How common is sexual misconduct in Hollywood? During his acceptance speech, Oldman thanked Churchill, as well as those who worked with him.
