Sam Rockwell today won the Academy Award for the Best Actor in a supporting role for his portrayal of a racist-yet-redeemable police officer in Martin McDonagh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". 

The 49-year-old actor, who earlier bagged a BAFTA, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for the critically-acclaimed performance in the film, concluded his award season journey as he walked home with his first ever golden statuette. This was also the first Academy Award nomination for Rockwell.

Period drama "Victoria & Abdul", starring Indian actor Ali Fazal alongside veteran British star Judi Dench, lost Makeup and Hairstyling and Costume Design Oscars to "Darkest Hour" and "Phantom Thread". 

Fazal plays the role of Indian servant Abdul to Dench's Queen Victoria in the film directed by Stephen Frears, which received two nods at the 90th Academy Awards in Los Angeles. The British-American biographical drama, based on the book by Shrabani Basu, narrates the story of a unique bond between the two titular characters - different in age, ethnicity, position and gender.

While Kazuhiro Tsuji, David Malinowski and Lucy Sibbick took home the golden statue for their jaw-dropping work in transforming Gary Oldman into Winston Churchill, Mark Bridges won the trophy for Paul Thomas Anderson's American period drama starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
