This year's Oscars ceremony was filled with memorable moments, but not much in terms of scandal. The Wrap's Beatrice Verhoeven sits down with Alyssa Julya Smith to recap all the best moments from the 90th Academy Awards.

Many thought the ceremony would be ore about politics than the actual films, but Hollywood's elite put their political leanings aside to celebrate the films. "The Shape of Water," which was one of the frontrunners of the night, took home best picture and director Guillermo del Toro also won best director for the film. Verhoeven discusses del Toro's speech about inclusion and diversity in Hollywood.

Verhoeven also talks about Frances McDormand winning best actress for her role in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." McDormand had the most rousing - and political - speech of the night. When she took the stage to give her acceptance speech, the actress made sure to honor all the women who were nominated. She asked - with the help of Meryl Streep - for all the women to stand up, regardless of their category, and be honored for their work.
