The 90th Oscars were packed full of first time Oscar winners. Eleven winners took home the golden statue for the first time. The first timers included young talent such as directors Jordan Peele and Rachel Shenton who won Oscars for their filmmaking debuts in “Get Out” and “The Silent Child” respectively. The night also saw many veterans in the industry take home their long awaited first Oscar such as Gary Oldman (Best Actor in a Leading Role) and Roger Deakins (Best Cinematography).
