Hollywood's next big awards ceremony takes place on Thursday night, where Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot will be honoured with the "See Her" Award for pushing boundaries on changing stereotypes. Franco did not attend Thursday's presentation at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., and his award was presented during a pre-telecast section broadcast only online.

Amazon Prime's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" was a surprise victor, receiving the award for best comedy series. This was her second win at the annual awards show, after being named Best Actress in an action movie in 2016 for Suicide Squad. "I wanna thank all of my children who show me so much love", she said. "We will continue to band together to make strides, uniting for equality".

And when the final award for Best Picture was announced, The Shape of Water director Guillermo Del Toro had an announcement for those standing in the way of progress.

Abbie was nominated within the "Best Acting Ensemble" category with her co-stars, with the film also up for Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

"Let me tell you one thing, if you don't do that, you don't know what you're missing", he said.

Numerous actresses at the Critics' Choice Awards wore white, with Angelina Jolie in a shoulderless frock, slit to the thigh, with a feathered detail, on the blue carpet.

Weinstein and Winfrey had a longstanding relationship prior to his downfall in the entertainment industry, but he claims Winfrey continued to support him after dozens of women accused him of sexual misconduct. "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!"

Supporting honours for TV movie or miniseries went to Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern, for Big Little Lies - based on a book by Australian author Liane Moriarty. "As you say, I was the victim".

Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel won the Best Actress in Comedy (TV) while the show picked up the Best comedy series award as well.

"I humbly accept this on behalf of all of the women in this cast", said Kidman. She also urged people to visit the Time's Up website and donate to the Legal Defense Fund.
