A post shared by Allison Janney (@allisonbjanney) on I think at a certain point I had given up thinking this would happen for me because I just wasn’t given the kind of roles in the film that would get attention like this.And that’s what my very good friend Steven Rogers did for me.""He wrote this for me to do just that, to show a different side of me and show what I could do.Referring to Fox Searchlight's 13-time Oscar-nominated fantasy romance The Shape Of Water, in which a cleaning lady falls in love with a mysterious river creature, Kimmel joked: "We will always remember this year as the year men screwed up so badly that women started dating fish." Kimmel also turned last year's embarrassing envelope mix-up over the best picture winner into a running joke, warning this year's nominees, "This year when you hear your name called, don't get up right away!." Sunday's best picture Oscar - presented at the end of the three-and-a-half-hour show - is seen as a close race between The Shape Of Water, Three Billboards and Universal Pictures racial satire Get Out.
