'Shape of Water,' 'Handmaid's Tale' take top Critics' Choice Awards

Gal Gadot in Lebanese designer sparks backlash

Olivia Munn mocked Mark Wahlberg at the Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday (01.11.18).

Franco has said earlier claims made on Twitter this week were "not accurate". She said: "All my voters... you guys are so awesome, thank you so much". Del Toro, who was also named best director, closed the show Thursday night by shouting that he's always believed in the equality of women.

The Shape Of Water and Big Little Lies were the big winners of the night, each taking home four awards.

Starring Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Shannon, the film also picked up the Best Director, Best Production Design and Best Score prizes.

Joined by comedian Niecy Nash for a segment of the show, Olivia embarked on a skit now being called "Toast to the Good Guys", in which the pair raised glasses of champagne to the "regular human" behaviour of the nice guys in Hollywood.

"Yes! Congratulations for doing what you're supposed to do", Nash said.

Kidman thanked the entertainment community "who show up to make really fantastic films and TV and let us do what we love". 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. Many people also took issue with the fact that the film was entered as a comedy for the Globes alongside less-serious movies like The Greatest Showman. There were some uncomfortable moments, like Elisabeth Moss getting played off after accepting her award for The Handmaid's Tale. She ended her speech by dedicating her award to all the "Halleys" and "Moonies" out there.

Bosworth dished up some advice for her younger self too in the context of Time's Up: "I always would say to my younger self, don't worry so much". "Let's keep this going".

Rachel Brosnahan won the prize for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which was also voted Best Comedy.

Chris Hemsworth, Kaley Cuoco, Anthony Anderson, Nick Jonas, Kate Bosworth and Alison Brie are among the stars set to present at the ceremony, which will be broadcast on the CW network. Her co-star Sam Rockwell continued the winning streak by picking up the Best Supporting Actor award.

Gary Oldman took home the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in 'The Darkest Hour, ' and Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress for her role in 'I, Tonya'.

Brooklynn Prince is the star of The Florida Project and was honored for her work in the film at the Critics' Choice Awards.

The Big Sick won the award for Best Comedy Movie.
