While the rest of the Academy were recovering from the previous year's fiasco, Jimmy Kimmel has returned to the Oscars becoming the first host to host back to back ceremonies since Billy Crystal done so in 1991 and 1992. The theme for Hollywood was Time's Up and Me too in sexual harassment scandal that has plagued all the entertainment industry that had all of the awards politically-charged. In spite of ratings going down double digits; lower than dipping ratings in recent years, multiple records have been set: Denzel Washington and Octavia Spencer became the first African-American duo to get back-to-back nominations; with Washington becoming the most honored black actor, cinematographer Rachel Morrison became the first woman ever nominated for Best Cinematography. the Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing categories had the same 5 films nominated for the first time in Oscar history, approx. 12 married couples have been nominated, Christopher Plummer became the oldest actor nominated while John Williams became the oldest living individual nominated, Kobe Bryant became the first NBA player to get an Oscar nomination and win, and finally The Shape Of Water became just the second fantasy movie to win Best Picture. Honorary Oscars have been given out to Donald Sutherland for alifetime of indelible characters rendered with unwavering truthfulness, Agnes Varda for her compassion and curiosity informing a uniquely personal cinema, Owen Roizman for his expansive visual style and technical innovation having advanced the art of cinematography, and Charles Burnett for being a resolutely independent and influential film pioneer who has chronicled the lives of Black Americans with eloquence and insight. And in greater news, the Special Achievement Award has been resurrected with Alejandro G. Inarritu earning this special honor for his virtual reality project "Flesh and Sand."
