Critics' Choice Awards continue Hollywood's self-celebration

Angelina Jolie Critics' Choice

Olivia Munn says hosting a Hollywood awards show is nothing compared to speaking out about sexual misconduct.

And the award for most precious 2018 Critics' Choice Awards attendees goes to Brooklynn Prince and Jacob Tremblay!

When the allegations of Weinstein's history of sexual abuse and harassment came to light in late 2017, Winfrey posted on her Facebook, saying, "I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's ugly behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation". "It's not as easy to name names as people think".

"Let me tell you one thing, if you don't do that, you don't know what you're missing", he said.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association announced on January 3 that Munn would host their annual gala.

But the reporters were not done with the line of questioning yet. "Please, this is not how it works", another reporter said. Geeraedts published a segment with video of the remarkable exchange on social media. "Yes or no", one asked.

HollywoodLifers, do you hope the stars continue to wear black throughout awards season? "It's a little disheartening, actually, how little has changed between 1950 and today".

Munn wrote about her encounters with sexual misconduct in Hollywood in her 2010 book, "Suck it, Wonder Woman", but she said, "nobody cared back then". But it's too late for some victims whose experiences ultimately forced them from the industry. I personally checked on all the actresses constantly to make sure they were OK and comfortable. "Even though from the outside, the industry that we're in doesn't seem like a community, we really are".

"Let's not lose focus", she said, urging viewers to support the Time's Up initiative.

Organisers had billed the event in Santa Monica as being attended by Franco, but after announcing him as the victor, actor Walton Goggins said: "James couldn't be here tonight to accept this, so we will accept it on his behalf".
