The 90th Academy Awards saw Latin American artists and films take home some of the most coveted Oscars.

Mexico’s Guillermo del Toro won best director and his The Shape of Water took the top honour for best film.

Chile’s A Fantastic Woman was named best foreign language film and its star Daniela Vega became the first openly transgender woman to present at the ceremony.

Coco, a film with a Mexican Day of the Dead theme, won best animated feature.

In 2014, Mexico City native Alfonso Cuarón became the first Latino to win the award for Gravity, his film about two astronauts stranded in space.

In 2015, another Mexico City native, Alejandro González Iñárritu, followed suit with Birdman. Not content with just the one best director statuette, he added another the following year for The Revenant.
