Guillermo del Toro has just won four Academy Awards with “The Shape of Water”, a massively successful fantasy tale of equality, friendship and love, and his friend Hideo Kojima offered his congratulations on Twitter.
From his Japanese Twitter account, Kojima said “congrats my friend!!!” with few emoticons and a picture of the character del Toro will be playing in Death Stranding will all the Academy Awards the real one just won.
As a response, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the Metal Gear Solid Movie Director who was at the Kodak Theater for the ceremony, sent him a selfie with Guillermo del Toro saying that he “took this photo specifically for you”.
Then he used all hashtags from Kojima’s video games such as Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding (#MetalGearSolid #DeathStranding #nanomachines #Philosophers #LaLiLuLeLo). Of course, the Academy Award was part of the photo together with the two of them smiling an awesome lot.
