Gal Gadot accepts #SeeHer Award at Critics' Choice Awards

However, it was Gal Gadot that really took the spotlight when she collected the SeeHer award in a silver shimmering Prada number.

Embroiled in a growing controversy following a bombshell Los Angeles Times report detailing accusations of sexual misconduct, Franco didn't show up to accept his award. Franco did not attend, and his award was presented during a pre-telecast section broadcast only online.

Franco was one of many celebrities to wear a "Time's Up" pin to the Golden Globes on Sunday night, which lead some of his accusers to come forward on social media.

"I want to thank all of my children who show me so much love", the actress said, opting not to go her usual path in thanking only half her offspring. Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond.

"And I promise, my commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced".

When Peele accepted the Critics' Choice award for best director (scroll to the 1:40 mark in the video above), he wanted to make sure to remind people about the film's real message.

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

Congratulations, Brooklynn! We can't wait to see you win again.

The night proved to be a success for Nicole, who went home with the Best Actress in a Movie/Miniseries award for her Big Little Lies role. Close behind, unsurprisingly, is "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' for which Frances McDormand won Best Actress, Sam Rockwell got Best Supporting Actor and the entire cast landed Best Acting Ensemble".

Presenter Chris Hemsworth noted that women have had a stellar year at the box office.

Apart from the honorary award and Best Action Movie award, Wonder Woman was nominated for visual effects, and costume design. So, in what will surely provoke this year's version of #OscarsSoWhite outrage, I expect that Franco will still land a best actor Oscar nom on January 23.

Double winners Thursday included "I, Tonya", "Darkest Hour", "Get Out" and "Coco". "Coco" won animated feature and original song for "Remember Me".

Olivia Munn is confident, bold and the flawless host for the Critics' Choice Awards.
