#TimesUp movement continues at the Critics' Choice Awards

#TimesUp movement continues at the Critics' Choice Awards

The actor did fly to Los Angeles to attend the awards show, but at some point, changed his mind.

Amid sexual misconduct allegations, actor and filmmaker James Franco chose to skip the 2018 Critics" Choice Awards where he won the Best Actor honour for his role in "The Disaster Artist'. More women dressed in color on Thursday, but their determination to end gender discrimination remained just as fierce. "And I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right".

Tell us what you think! "And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality".

At the Critics' Choice, best picture went to.The Shape of Water. Alongside Best Picture, the critically lauded flick also nabbed Best Director for Del Toro and Best Composer for Alexandre Desplat.

Now, the Critics Choice prizes have been awarded.

Olivia Munn hosted the dinner ceremony, which was broadcast live on the CW network.

But Munn landed some shots as she hoisted glasses of champagne with Niecy Nash in a sarcastic toast to the "good guys" of Hollywood. "Say what?" Nash asked, to which Munn replied: "I know, he took a pay cut". "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond". Last year Weta Digital won the category for its work on the Disney reboot of The Jungle Book.

The actress had come under fire for not mentioning her two adopted children, Connor and Isabella, in her Golden Globes acceptance speech earlier this week. "She takes action when everyone around her is idle", she said.

The next big awards show is going to be the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which are set to be held on January 21, so let's see how politics shapes that red carpet too. The award was presented to Gadot by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. "The biggest comedy was a female ensemble, 'Girls Trip, ' and the biggest independent movie was written and directed by Greta Gerwig". The series won Best Limited Series, as well as for each of its stars; Nicole Kidman (Best Actress in a Movie/Miniseries), Laura Dern (Best Supporting Actress in a Movie/Miniseries), and Alexander Skarsgård (Best Supporting Actor in a Movie/Miniseries).

Double winners Thursday included "I, Tonya, ' 'Darkest Hour, ' 'Get Out" and 'Coco'. Many could not believe that Franco won the Critics' Choice Award in the wake of the Times story, but the reality is that voters had not seen the Times story prior to the close of voting on Tuesday night, so Franco's off-screen conduct wasn't a consideration for many.
