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

Gal Gadot in Lebanese designer sparks backlash

The stars turned up at the Critics' Choice Awards decked in a rainbow of colors and sparkle.

The filmmaker described Gadot as "her real Wonder Woman" before she presented the award to the Israeli star.

Wahlberg was paid more than 1,000 times what co-star Michelle Williams received for last year's high-profile reshoots for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World - which aimed to replace disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with veteran Christopher Plummer.

The #SeeHer campaign, started by the Association of National Advertisers past year, aims to "push boundaries" and "recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape".

Best Action Movie went to "Wonder Woman", while "The Big Sick" was named Best Comedy.

Triangle hospitals cope with shortage of IV fluids
Pasko and other hospital officials said they worry that changes in procedures and products could lead to errors. Duke University Hospital says every month, it's only getting half the fluids it used to before the hurricane.

She said: "I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right, standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves". She concluded her inspiring acceptance speech with a commitment to "never be silenced" and continue to work together toward a common goal of equality.

Nicole Kidman took home another accolade at the Critics' Choice Awards for her portrayal as Celeste Wright in the hit HBO series Big Little Lies.

"We're very happy that our movie's coming out in a year when Hollywood's having a lot of hard conversations with itself and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long". For this, everyone who won an award had to hear the playoff music after, like, 30 seconds of talking? "She did it for us", Patty explained. And I think, as men, we've been talking for centuries.

"It's surreal. When I read the script I looked at Jordan and said, 'Are they really gonna let you do this, brother?"

It is far from assured that The Shape of Water, which won best picture at the Critics' Choice Awards, will do the same at the Oscars, since the Oscars employ a preferential ballot, which the Critics' Choice Awards do not, and that can affect things a lot.
