Big Little Lies big at Critics' Choice

She was joined at the 23rd Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica by Kate Bosworth, who wowed in an off-white gown from The Brock Collection, and Diane Kruger who wore a Vera Wang gown.

Writer/director Jordan Peele was also a big victor at the Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday night, claiming the Best Original Screenplay prize for Get Out, which was also named the Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was named best comedy series, and star Rachel Brosnahan won best actress in a comedy.

Ahead of its fourth season, A&E Network's "Born This Way" won a Critics' Choice Award.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association announced on January 3 that Munn would host their annual gala.

"All of the women who I love so much in my own life who support me every single day - my mother, who's on FaceTime".

Margot Robbie took home the award in the "Best Actress in a Comedy" category, for her portrayal of figure skater Tonya Harding in the movie I, Tonya.

"Wonder Woman" was accorded the best action film trophy while "The Big Sick" was adjudged best comedy film. Gadot won the #SeeHer Award.

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".

"I do want to say, by the way, thank you to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money, and Mark Wahlberg a million dollars", Munn said. The film also won for acting ensemble and supporting actor for Sam Rockwell. He is now battling multiple sexual misconduct claims, sparked by The Breakfast Club star Ally Sheedy, who tweeted and then deleted a cryptic message, in which she appeared to reference his lewd conduct, while he was onstage accepting his award on Sunday.

Yet Gerwig still had reason to celebrate on Thursday, having been named as one of the five film-makers up for the Directors Guild of America's best director award. Should he bag the best director Oscar, he will be its fourth Mexican victor in the last five years, with all four wins spread among "The Three Amigos" (Alfonso Cuaron won for Gravity in 2014 and Alejandro G. Inarritu won for Birdman in 2015 and The Revenant in 2016).

Bruce Miller, creator of "The Handmaid's Tale", which won best drama at the awards show, sported the Time's Up pin, saying he felt that with the #MeToo movement, "everyone got together".
