Women big winners at Critics' Choice Awards

Gal Gadot in Lebanese designer sparks backlash

The only female Critics' Choice Award victor for Best Director since 1995 was Kathryn Bigelow, for The Hurt Locker. Munn said, "Way to be regular human beings, guys!"

Double winners Thursday included I, Tonya, Darkest Hour, Get Out and Coco.

"Blade Runner 2049", "Call Me By Your Name", "In The Fade", "Phantom Thread", "War for the Planet of the Apes" and "The Florida Project" also got accolades, with "Baby Driver" and "Dunkirk" being the only films to tie for an award (Best Editing). The film also won Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie. HBO's The Wizard of Lies won the best movie made for TV. The Hulu series was also announced as the Best Drama Series at the event. Thanks to a tight schedule, we heard a lot of the Critics' Choice Awards playoff music, and it was the same interminable dirge each time. "I wanna thank all of my children who show me so much love", she said. She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress.

In what has been hailed on Twitter as an already iconic awards show segment, Olivia began with: "At this time, my friend Niecy Nash and I would like to make a toast to all the good guys in Hollywood. It really is an incredible honour".

"Every actor in this room knows you are only as good as the other actors you work with", she gushed.

The #SeeHer Award recognizes a woman who seeks "to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape".

"What I think is so powerful that came out of that was the idea of hope, and light, and optimism, and positivity, and we discussed that as being expressed in the dress", she told us.

Sterling K Brown won the award for his role in hit-drama series This is Us.

The white theme could indicate a theme of innocence and purity, giving the message that women who share their sexual assault stories should be listened to, instead of doubted.

The pair then turned their attentions to the Golden Globes.

Asked if being tapped to host the Critics' Choice ceremony feels like an endorsement of her outspokenness, Munn said she's felt the greatest support from the Hollywood community and the public. The Best Comedy Series award went to Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", with star Rachel Brosnahan bagging the award of Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

RuPaul, Shark Tank, The Voice, and Born This Way took the top honours for Reality Television shows.

At the 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards, the feature film won four trophies, including best picture and best director for Guillermo del Toro.

The Golden Globe victor received the honour for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Winston Churchill. The Best Actress award went to Frances McDormand for her performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

With recent news that Michelle Williams was paid a mere 1% of Mark Wahlberg's fee for reshooting scenes on new movie All The Money In The World, however, it wasn't long before the actor became a punchline.
