Del Toro's latest film garnered him a total of 7 nominations, among them Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Orginal Score. Del Toro won for Best Director for a motion picture and while delivering his thank you speech he was cut off by the prompt signaling music to which he said "lower the music it's taken 25 years so give me a minute" and we could not agree more.
The movie, which stars Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, and Octavia Spencer, is set during the Cold War and follows the story of Elisa Esposito who forms a relationship with an amphibious man brought to the secret laboratory that she cleans during the night.
The beautiful Mexican actress, Salma Hayek, took to Instagram to share a photo alongside Del Toro in celebration of his win. She writes, "So proud of Mexican director #guillermodeltoro for his #GoldenGlobe."
