Guillermo del Toro quietly divorced previous year

09 March 2018

For eight years, French composer Alexandre Desplat was always a bridesmaid and never a bride at the Oscars with several nominations for scores to such pics like The Queen, King's Speech and Argo.

A few days after taking home two Oscars at the 90th Academy Awards, director Guillermo del Toro has revealed that he divorced his wife of three decades Lorenza Newton a year ago.

The author of the novel tie-in to this year's best picture victor "The Shape of Water" will be coming to Santa Clarita. Guillermo, who also won Best Picture for The Shape of Water, tells Reforma he and Morgan, a screenwriter on his forthcoming movie Nightmare Alley, became good friends last summer (17), although he doesn't specify if he and his Oscars "plus one" are also in a romantic relationship. They are parents to daughters Marisa and Mariana.

It was his second Academy Award - having previously won the 2014 "Best Original Score" Oscar for this work on The Grand Budapest Hotel. The ceremony, held Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, exorcised some demons - like last year's envelope fiasco - and wrestled with other, deeper problems in Hollywood, like gender equality and diversity.

Kraus will speak about his collaboration with del Toro, the genesis of the story of a mute woman and a sea monster, the feature film, horror books and the Oscars.

"The greatest thing that art does, and that our industry does, is erase the lines in the sand", said del Toro, accepting the best director award.
