McDormand, who won her second Oscar after her performance in “Fargo,” placed her statuette on the stage and dedicated the prize to all women nominees, across categories.

She bested Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird”), Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”) and Meryl Streep (“The Post”).
