Big Little Lies big at Critics' Choice

It was a good night for women at the Critics' Choice Award, which honoured women-centred stories like Big Little Lies, The Handmaid's Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Everyone's a critic, and everyone hates that music these awards shows start to play when a star natters on and on, thanking all their second cousins and postal workers.

Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, who were both absent from the event, were announced as Best Actress and Supporting Actor in a Movie for their performances in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

For this awards season we're eschewing some of the standard fare of previous years-consistent "Best Dressed" roundups, for example-to focus on spotlighting the ways women are changing Hollywood, from record-breaking awards to the characters redefining how woman are portrayed onscreen. David Harbour won best supporting actor in a drama series for Stranger Things.

Saoirse has also received a Best Leading Actress nod for this year's Bafta Awards. James Franco scored the Best Actor in a Comedy Movie.

The message was amplified once inside; Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot dedicating her acceptance speech to the movement for a special #SeeHer award.

Get Out was named Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and won the Best Original Screenplay title.

Extreme cold causes weekend delays, cancellations at New York JFK
Global airlines have committed to have baggage reunited by passengers in New York City by Tuesday morning, said Cotton. The pipe break sent about three inches (eight centimeters) of water gushing onto the floor of the terminal.

Guillermo del Toro and the cast and crew of The Shape of Water accept the award for best picture.

Chris Hemsworth, Kaley Cuoco, Anthony Anderson, Nick Jonas, Kate Bosworth and Alison Brie are among the stars set to present at the ceremony, which will be broadcast on the CW network.

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.

The more I talk to Academy members, the more I hear rumblings about this summer's biggest hit - if not because it's a cinematic work of art, then because no movie better captures this new era of female empowerment.

Olivia Munn hosted the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards last night, and following on from the powerful speeches at the Golden Globes, the actress used her platform to call out gender inequality in an incredible way.

Actor Gary Oldman took home the Best Actor award for his outstanding portrayal as Winston Churchill in the film Darkest Hour.
