Awards season favorite Sam Rockwell wins Oscar for 'Three Billboards …'

Allison Janney bagged her first Oscar with I, Tonya in the category of Best Supporting Actress.

You can catch the Oscars live from the comfort of your laptop at ABC.com and on the ABC app. I thought the music was going. "My mom and dad's love for movies became my love for movies", Rockwell said while accepting the award from actress Viola Davis. I could go on for an hour about Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was an old friend of mine. "And he was an inspiration to all of my peers".

Director McDonagh admitted to Metro.co.uk after winning the Bafta for Outstanding British Film that it was not his choice to offer a statement defending his film, and that he believed he was forced to offer a statement to defend his work as it was awards season. "In fact, he vowed to do a play a year, which I don't know if he got to do...but he was a great inspiration and a great theater director". He added that he "was a bit of a jock, a wrestler and he played basketball".

Sam Rockwell is glad people heard his tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Hoffman died in 2014 from acute mixed drug intoxication.

Hoffman died February 2, 2014, in his NY apartment.

The 49-year-old won the first award of the night for Best Supporting Actor for his role as a racist policeman in the crime drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Not only is Rockwell a star on screen, he has owned the stage in a number of theatrical productions, including his most recent performance in Sam Shepherd's Broadway play Fool For Love alongside Nina Arianda.

'They're not redeemed at the end of the movie.

Both Rockwell's co-star Frances McDormand and his partner Leslie Bibb could be seen wiping tears away after his win.
