Gary Oldman wins Best Actor at Critics' Choice Awards

Gary Oldman wins Best Actor at Critics' Choice Awards

While some speculated that the sartorial blackout in support of #TimesUp would transcend the Golden Globes, this was not the case at the Critics' Choice Awards.

James Franco wasn't facing the music, er, Critics' Choice Awards.

Get Out also won Best Screenplay alongside Luca Guadagnino's LGBT love story Call Me By Your Name. Dern, lest we forget, has been on her own win streak, with Emmy, Globe and Critics' Choice victories as well.

"Big Little Lies" received four awards: best limited series, as well as acting honors for Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern.

Gadot began her acceptance speech by pointing out that the top three films of 2017 "The Last Jedi", "Wonder Woman", and "Beauty and the Beast" were all led by women.

Queen of Hollywood! The Critics Choice Award was another big win for Nicole who has also won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her part in Big Little Lies

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.

She said: "The whole process of making this film inspired me and I hope it inspires others". Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won best drama at the Golden Globes, while Lady Bird won best comedy.

"We're very happy that our movie is coming out in a year where Hollywood is having a lot of hard conversations with itself, and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long", Kumail Nanjiani said as he accepted the best comedy award for "The Big Sick".

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. Actor Violet Paley took to Twitter during the ceremony on Sunday (7 January) to accuse Franco of trying to force himself on her. "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond". "They've got a good thing going and they rock".
