Fruitful) is a beloved writer who won two Oscars for Best Picture and Director for “The Shape of Water” (2017). If “Pinocchio” wins animated feature, he will be the first person to win Oscars for picture, direction and animation.

It will be the second time since 2006 that all three have been recognized individually, following “Babel”, “Children of Men” and “Pan’s Labyrinth”. All lost their prize.
