Brendan Fraser's best actor win for "The Whale" wasn't a total surprise, but it was a delightful victory nonetheless.
The actor had been favored along with "Elvis" star Austin Butler to potentially take home the Oscar, and Fraser appeared both shocked and humbled by the win.
He thanked the usual suspects, including his family, agent and studio.
Fraser had a special shoutout for his costar, Hong Chau.
"I want to tell you that only whales can swim at the depth of talent of Hong Chau," he said.
