“The Shape of Water”
Hello! My name is Alyssa Davis and I am an English teacher at the American Academy of English in Guangzhou, China.
On Sunday night, at the 2018 Academy Awards,the big winner was The Shape of Water.
That’s "The Shape of Water".
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, beloved director of many movies across several genres, including Horror with The Devil's Backbone as well as action and sci-fi with Pacific Rim and even comedy with Hellboy.

The mute women was played by actress Sally Hawkins.

She's played the lead role in films such as Paddington One and Two as well as movies like the Blue Jasmine directed by Woody Allen.
That's famous director "Woody Allen".
The amphibious man was played by actor, Doug Jones.

This is what he looks like. Many people are familiar with his work but would never recognize him.
