  • Critics' Choice Awards 2018: 'Shape of Water,' 'Big Little Lies' win big!

Coco won for Best Animated Movie and Best Song for "Remember Me".

James Franco, recently accused of by five women, won the award for best actor in a comedy, to muted applause.

"This Is Us", "The Handmaid's Tale", "Stranger Things", "Game of Thrones", "The Crown" and "American Gods" are up for best drama series. The show also picked up best-limited series.

Nicole Kidman won a Critics' Choice Award for her role in Big Little Lies and this time thanked all her children.

Kidman has in the past attracted attention for acknowledging only her two daughters with husband Keith Urban in award show speeches, and not the two adult adopted children she raised with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

"I love being an actor", said the 50-year-old Oscar victor. Thank you.... When I started my career, I couldn't get to the reviews fast enough.

She also paid gushing tribute to her Big Little Lies co-stars and explained, "Every actor in this room knows you are only as good as the other actors you work with".

The ceremony, in California, took place days after Hollywood stars wore black at the Golden Globes, to protest against sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

It may not win any best picture awards, but Gadot's Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, became the highest-grossing live action film to be directed by a woman, crossing the $5 billion mark at the global box office a year ago. Wonder Woman was named best action movie and star Gal Gadot accepted a special award for challenging gender stereotypes. "You guys are awesome, we should go and get ice cream after this!" she said through tears as she made her way to the stage to accept the best young actor award during Thursday's ceremony.

All the Money in the World was not nominated at the show, but Plummer was nominated at last weekend's Golden Globes and has been again for next month's Bafta Film Awards - both in the Best Supporting Actor category.

The Shape of Water, which led all nominees with 14 bids, also claimed the best picture prize, along with score and production design honours.

Oprah Winfrey received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes.
