BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - It's Monday at the annual Oscars Nominees Luncheon but "The Shape of Water" director Guillermo del Toro is still riding high from his Directors Guild Award win on Saturday night. The Mexican director was all smiles thinking about the evening with his peers.

Del Toro said the night was fun and praised Judd Apatow's hosting skills, although he admitted that one joke aimed at him went over his head at the time.

Apatow poked fun during Saturday's ceremony at del Toro's director's photo, quipping that it was like an eHarmony profile picture.

Del Toro said Monday that he didn't actually know what eHarmony was when Apatow made the joke and that he had to look it up. He thinks it's quite funny now.
