Accepting the Oscar for Best Picture, del Toro jokingly examined the envelope in a nod to last year's Best Picture mix-up, before delivering a speech that championed diversity, storytelling, and the future of film.
"I'm an immigrant, like my compadres and like many of you", del Toro said when picking up the prize on stage.
Kraus will speak about his collaboration with del Toro, the genesis of the story of a mute woman and a sea monster, the feature film, horror books and the Oscars. But at the end of the night - after almost four hours of televised awards and performances!
Kimmel set the tone by targeting Weinstein in his opening monologue, describing the disgraced producer's downfall following dozens of allegations of sexual harassment and assault as "long overdue". "We can't let bad behaviour slide anymore". The world is watching us.
Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro quietly divorced his wife of 31 years in 2017. "Clues were left - she was found in a river, she's never been able to speak, she masturbates underwater every morning, and most importantly he healed her "scars" into working gills".
Her "Three Billboards" co-star Rockwell kicked off the night by claiming best supporting actor for his acclaimed turn as a racist, violent police officer.
Kraus has previously won two Odyssey Awards and landed on Entertainment Weekly's Top 10 Books of the Year. You are all extraordinary, ' the statuesque 58-year-old Janney, the overwhelming favourite, enthused at the podium. - added "After pouring my heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into this romantic, beautiful, magical role, the last thing I want to be remembered for is a silicone appendage that comes in two sizes".
The Time's Up initiative was not as visible as at the Golden Globes in January, with no coordinated protest - like the striking Globes red carpet "blackout".
Director Ava DuVernay, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani and others spoke in a video segment about progress in smashing barriers in the industry around racism and sexism.
The Shape Water is the kind of film which you watch while biting your nails, laughing with delight, feeling heartsick, all the while unsure of where it is taking you, until it ends, haunts you in your dreams and then makes you want to watch all the good bits over and over again.
Beatty and Dunaway were reported to be in the wings to present Best Picture to this year's victor, and Kimmel joked earlier there could be no mistake this year.
Suffice to say that one just doesn't quite know what is going to happen next in this film that is wrought with such care, and laced with so much tension, supported by a cast of characters who are played by the best of the best when it comes to thespians.
