Del Toro wins Best Director for Motion Picture — Golden Globes

The Shape of Water Review Del Toro wins Best Director for Motion Picture — Golden Globes
Orlando Vargas | 09 Января, 2018, 12:06

Guillermo del Toro may be a Golden Globe victor, but he's not letting the attention get to his head.

Del Toro's work is characterized by a strong connection to fairy tales and horror, with an effort to infuse visual or poetic beauty.

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro won his first Golden Globe Award last night for his dark fantasy drama film The Shape of Water.

"Since childhood, I've been faithful to monsters", said Del Toro, calling them "patron saints of imperfection". "And they allow and embody the possibility of failing and [living]". "For 25 years, I have handcrafted very odd little tales made of motion, color, light and shadow...and in three precise instances, these unusual stories, these fables, have saved my life. And in many of these instances - in three precise instances - these unusual stories, these fables have saved my life", he added, citing his films The Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth, and The Shape of Water. Once with Devil's Backbone, once with Pan's Labyrinth, and now with Shape of Water, because as directors, these things are not just entries in a filmography.

It was a much-deserved victory for del Toro following positive reviews for The Shape of Water.

When the music started to play snd the director was threatened with being played off, he successfully pleaded for a few more seconds, imploring: "Lower the music, guys". "'The Shape of Water' ends both things", del Toro said, adding, "I don't think love is about transformation and about changing the person, but understanding the person". He thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press on behalf of himself and his monsters, nothing that the award was 25 years in the making.
