It was a huge night for “The Shape of Water.” Guillermo Del Toro accepted his first Best Director Academy Award and the movie went on to win the top prize, Best Picture. Most of the movie’s stars were in the auditorium to see it all happen in person.
Michael Shannon watched the Oscars from a Chicago dive bar.
Bruce Elliott runs the Old Town Ale House. He took a picture of Shannon watching the show with no sound on the TV, asking “Where else would you want to spend Oscar night?”
Check out his tweet from the other night…..this is great:
Michael Shannon watching the film he starred in, “Shape of Water”, win best picture while sitting in the Old Town Ale House. No sound on the TV, just sub-titles. Of course the juke box was rocking, and the beer flowing. Where else would you want to spend Oscar night? pic.twitter.com/WAC6uc6guZ
