Gal GadotThe 2018 Critics Choice Awards took place last night to celebrate the best in film and television. Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water won the night’s biggest honor for Best Picture and Best Director.

Frances McDormand’s performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri earned her the Best Actress award while Margot Robbie won Best Actress in a Comedy for her role in I, Tonya.

Gary Oldman won Best Actor for Darkest Hour, while James Franco won Best Actor in the comedy category for his work in The Disaster Artist. Franco wasn’t in attendance in light of the recent sexual misconduct allegations.

Critics enjoyed the film Get Out, as it nabbed Best Sci-fi/horror Movie, while Get Out‘s Jordan Peele won for Best Adapted Screenplay. The Critics Choice Awards have positioned key players in the Oscar spotlight and are pretty good predictions of who might take home the golden statue.

HBO’s Big Little Lies smashed the competition by winning big on the TV side, taking home four awards including Nicole Kidman for Best Actress, Laura Dern for Best Supporting Actress, and Alexander Skarsgård for Best Supporting Actor. The show also won Best Limited Series.

Gal Gadot was honored with the #SeeHer award for her work in Wonder Woman. It’s awarded to a women whose work echoes the #SeeHer initiative, which is “to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape.”

The ceremony’s host, Olivia Munn, was joined by Niecy Nash as they toasted to the “good guys” in Hollywood. They also gave a shout out to Mark Wahlberg, whose jaw-dropping paycheck was revealed to be 1500 times more than that of co-star Michelle Williams for reshoots for the movie All the Money in the World. They said, “Thank you to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money, and Mark Wahlberg $1 million. I know, he took a pay cut. It’s really nice and generous of him.” Yup, really generous. ~Marriska Fernandes
