Fans and some film buffs agree—Gary Oldman was long overdue for not only Oscar recognition, but the actual gold. The acclaimed actor won his first Oscar the Best Actor category for his performance as Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour" at the 90th Academy Awards, but the Internet is up in arms. Oldman was accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife in 2001. He denied the allegations, but others also won't let him forget his antisemitic and racist remarks of the past. Should he have won?

Vox rehashed accusations of domestic violence as well as antisemitic and racist comments against the Oscar-winning Gary Oldman. Constance Grady's writes: 

In 2001, Oldman’s now ex-wife, Donya Fiorentino, said that Oldman choked her and beat her with a telephone in front of their young children. In an interview earlier this year with the Independent, Fiorentino reiterated her story, saying, “Our marriage was a giant car crash in which demented things happened. I lost my self-esteem...I was broken. I would rather get eaten by a great white shark than go through that marriage again.”
Oldman has denied Fiorentino’s claims, saying through a representative that the police investigated her story and pressed no charges.
It’s not only the domestic violence accusations that could shadow Oldman. In 2014, Oldman courted controversy in an interview with Playboy.

But Oldman has been the frontrunner to win most of the awards season—beating out former Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington, and breakthrough newcomers Daniel Kaluuya and Timothée Chalamet.
