The 90th Academy Awards were supposed to celebrate the Time's Up and Me Too movements while empowering women who have been victims of sexual abuse by the powerful men in the entertainment industry. And now, he's an Oscar victor.

Oldman, 59, was also caught making controversial comments defending accused abusers Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin in a 2014 Playboy interview.

And he ended by thanking his 98-year-old mother and telling her to get ready for a celebration.

Taking aim at not only Oldman but also Oscar victor National Basketball Association star Kobe Bryant, who'd been accused of rape in 2003, Fiorentino told TMZ, "Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars".

White House suing California over immigrant policies
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is also expected to speak at the same event, a spokesperson confirmed to ABC10 News. It allows ICE agents to interview immigrants at county jails, though not to hold permanent office space there.

It's as if neither man has a history of alleged harassment and abuse.

Still, let's not forget to celebrate the little wins: Ryan Seacrest might have been the most protected man at the Oscars yesterday after reporting for E! despite sexual harassment allegations, but he was avoided by damn near every single celebrity like an over-spray tanned bad smell.

McDormand, 60, whose character seemed to channel the anger of the #MeToo movement that has dominated Hollywood and beyond, asked all the female nominees - across directing, cinematography, costumes and some 20 other categories - to stand up in the audience and be recognised.

Fiorentino did file a police report with the LAPD but there was no arrest and Oldman was never charged. The critically acclaimed Darkest Hour received six Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling and Best Production Design. The controversy led to Affleck skipping this year's show. Breaking tradition, the show's producers asked Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence to present. She accompanied him to the Oscars.

Russian, US air strikes in Syria caused mass civilian deaths, United Nations says
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said 80 civilians were killed on Monday. The United Nations estimates 400,000 people are trapped under a government siege in the area.

Until December a year ago, The Florida Project was considered an Oscar favourite. And while the British actor's performance was raved about by critics, one person is speaking out against The Academy's decision.

"Well, if I called Nancy Pelosi a cunt - and I'll go one better, a fucking useless cunt - I can't really say that".

Oldman, 58, carried a number of "lucky charms" into the ceremony with him, including a copy of Churchill's famous, "We shall fight them on the beaches" speech.

Giants Acquire Alec Ogletree In Trade With Rams
A first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2013 draft, Ogletree had his best season in 2016, when he was named second-team All-Pro. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because National Football League trades can't be announced until March 14.
