Oscars: Frances McDormand and Gary Oldman best actors

Two decades after winning her first Best Actress Academy Award for playing Marge Gunderson in “Fargo”, a police chief about to give birth, Frances McDormand today took home her second Oscar for her role of Mildred Hayes, a mother grieving the loss of her teenage daughter, in award season’s favourite “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”. This year, the 60-year-old actor had also won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role in Martin McDonagh’s film. Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster presented the Best Actress trophy to McDormand, in a break from tradition where the previous year’s Best Actor winner presents the award.
