Fortunately, Jordan Peele's hit horror flick, Get Out won the award for Best Screenplay.

Gary Oldman earned the accolade for Best Actor in a Movie for Darkest Hour. HBO's The Wizard of Lies won the best movie made for TV. "Big Little Lies", which brought supporting actor honors to Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern. The Hulu series was also announced as the Best Drama Series at the event.

Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman took home the trophy for Best Actress in a Limited Series. Thanks to a tight schedule, we heard a lot of the Critics' Choice Awards playoff music, and it was the same interminable dirge each time.

"In the past weeks and months we've been witnessing a movement in our industry and society and I want to share this award with all women and men who stand for what's right", said the Israeli actress. She sported similar accents, this time on the ends of her sleeves, at Sunday night's Golden Globes. God, I would like to thank you for this opportunity.

She dedicated her win to "all of the women" in the room - including her mum who was watching via FaceTime.

The Golden Globe victor received the honour for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Winston Churchill.

Competing in the comedy category are: "black-ish", "The Big Bang Theory", "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Modern Family" and "Patriot". In the past week, Jenkins and Gadot attended the AFI Awards, where their film was recognized as one of 2017's 10 best, and where Jenkins, an AFI alum, received a shout-out from AFI's head honcho, Bob Gazzale, and was invited to offer the closing benediction; then Gadot presented at the Golden Globe Awards; then Jenkins and Gadot jetted to NY to accept the National Board of Review's Spotlight Award; and then both came back to L.A.to attend the Critics' Choice Awards, where the film was awarded best action movie and Gadot accepted the pre-announced #SeeHer honor, prompting one of the few standing ovations of the night. Wonder Woman was named best action movie and star Gal Gadot accepted a special award for challenging gender stereotypes.

The fantasy thriller was named Best Picture, while Guillermo del Toro picked up the prize for Best Director.

"3 Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri" took home 3 awards, including a best actress award for Frances McDormand, and Samuel Rockwell for Best Supporting Actor.

Munn also poked fun at actor Mark Wahlberg, who is now being accused of demanding an excessive amount of money for the film All the Money in the World.

With recent news that Michelle Williams was paid a mere 1% of Mark Wahlberg's fee for reshooting scenes on new movie All The Money In The World, however, it wasn't long before the actor became a punchline. Mark Bridges of Daniel Day-Lewis' Phantom Thread won Best Costume Design.
