Two major winners were just revealed at the 90th Academy Awards.

The ceremony announced the victors in the Best Lead Actor and Best Lead Actress races.

Gary Oldman, the odds-on betting favorite, won the Actor prize for his work in “Darkest Hour.”

The other Best Actor nominees included Timothee Chalamet, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Kaluuya, and Denzel Washington.

Frances McDormand, the odds-on favorite for Best Actress, predictably took home that trophy for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

The other Best Actress nominees included Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, Margot Robbie, and Sally Hawkins.
