Many wondered why Newton, with whom del Toro shares daughters Marisa and Mariana, didn't accompany him to the star-studded event. "I separated in February [of 2017] and divorced in September, but few people knew", the Mexican filmmaker said. So even if Guillermo del Toro never intended for the film to be interpreted in this fashion, he should probably start saying this was his plan all along.
For those of you that can't quite remember it, Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi fantasy finishes with United States Colonel Strickland (Michael Shannon) killing both the Amphibian Man (Doug Jones) and Elisa (Sally Hawkins). "In case some news appears, let's clarify that I separated (from Lorenza) in February".
Guillermo, who also won Best Picture for The Shape of Water, tells Reforma he and Morgan, a screenwriter on his forthcoming movie Nightmare Alley, became good friends last summer (17), although he doesn't specify if he and his Oscars "plus one" are also in a romantic relationship.
The Shape of Water has taken home the Oscar for Original Score.

Anticipating a night of long speeches, some of them potentially statements of rage, he made a serious offer: the shortest thank-you speech of the night would receive a brand new Jet Ski, worth $18,000 (U.S.).
The author of the novel tie-in to this year's best picture victor "The Shape of Water" will be coming to Santa Clarita.
Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong'o and Pakistani-American Nanjiani also spoke out on behalf of America's so-called Dreamers - hundreds of thousands of young people whose parents brought them to the U.S. illegally, and whose fate is now uncertain. But will it go home with the most trophies Sunday night?
