Five of Guillermo's films have garnered a whopping 24 Academy Award nominations altogether. The Shape of Water earned Guillermo his first Academy Award for Best Director (he also was awarded a BAFTA and Golden Globe that same year for Best Director for the same film).

Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities is already drawing high praise from critics and fans alike — the Netflix anthology series currently has a 93 percent average audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Did you know that Guillermo also co-directed and co-wrote the script for the latest iteration of Pinocchio? Naturally, this isn't the family-friendly 1940 Disney animated classic or the other recent adaptation with Tom Hanks.

Guillermo's Pinocchio adaptation is obviously a darker take on the tale, told with stop-motion animation. The film will be released in select theaters sometime in November 2022, before its official streaming release on Netflix on Dec. 9, 2022.
