DaFoe might have won the best supporting male Oscar on Sunday if it 
weren't for Sam Rockwell.

Ironically 3 Billboards probably won't get best picture because of 
recent concern by the Academy that Rockwell's racist character wasn't 
"redeemed enough" at the end (The Shape of Water has pulled ahead).

Also looks like Frances McDormand has a lock on her second Oscar. For 
the guys, Gary Oldman is a shoo-in.
