Critics' Choice Awards: 'Wonder Woman' wins Best Action Movie

Adjust Comment Print

The Big Sick won the award for Best Comedy Movie. Franco did not attend, and his award was presented during a pre-telecast section broadcast only online. While in the a year ago there have been several allegations of abuse made against bigwigs in Hollywood and in the White House, this happens across all industries, and the #TimesUp movement aims to bring awareness to that. She sported similar accents, this time on the ends of her sleeves, at Sunday night's Golden Globes.

The message was amplified once inside; Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot dedicating her acceptance speech to the movement for a special #SeeHer award. "My promise to you is: I will never be silenced". Best Production Design and Best Score titles also went to movie. "As artists and filmmakers, I believe that it's not only our job to entertain but our duty to inspire and educate for love and respect", she said of the importance of representation in media.

Ironic that the creator of the eerily culturally relevant TV show The Handmaid's Tale is the only truly notable man who wore that "Time's Up" pin, isn't it?

Guillermo del Toro is going to be hard to beat in the best director race.

Actress and activist Olivia Munn hosted the gala, which aired on The CW.


"I'd like to raise a glass to that studio executive who had me meet him in the studio conference room, instead of his actual hotel room". Congratulations for doing what you're supposed to do!

The series, which tackled mysterious murder and domestic violence, also earned Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern best supporting actor and actress in limited series respectively.

Kidman thanked the entertainment community "who show up to make really fantastic films and TV and let us do what we love".

"I was still overwhelmed", she said.

The Wonder Women's speech can be counted in such category easily. She also urged people to visit the Time's Up website and donate to the Legal Defense Fund. "That conversation continues today", Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) told USA TODAY. Sam Rockwell and Ellison Jenny won the supporting role.


Reedus wore spring/summer '18 Samson leather boots, while the actress, whose film "In the Fade" won Best Foreign Language tonight, hid the same pumps Munn wore in white under her elegant Vera Wang gown.

Meanwhile, best actor went to Gary Oldman for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's Darkest Hour.

For Best Original Screenplay and Best Thriller, director Jordan Peele won for his breakout film Get Out.

Prince, the 7-year-old star of The Florida Project, burst into tears as she walked to the stage to accept her award for best young actor/actress.

I've now had a chance to sleep on the results of the 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards, which were held on Thursday night (and which I voted for as a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association).


For this awards season we're eschewing some of the standard fare of previous years-consistent "Best Dressed" roundups, for example-to focus on spotlighting the ways women are changing Hollywood, from record-breaking awards to the characters redefining how woman are portrayed onscreen.
