Women take the spotlight at Critics' Choice Awards

The real victor of Thursday's 2018 Critics' Choice Awards was a 7-year-old superstar who invited her fellow nominees to ice cream.

A number of awards have already been unceremoniously presented off the telecast, relegated to a streamed pre-show - a full third of them, in fact.

"The official Twitter handle of the film posted, "#DarkestHour wins two #CriticsChoiceAwards for BEST ACTOR and BEST HAIR & MAKEUP!

"3 Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri" took home 3 awards, including a best actress award for Frances McDormand, and Samuel Rockwell for Best Supporting Actor.

HBO's "Big Little Lies" was the top victor Thursday among TV shows with four awards, including best limited series.

In the television sphere, "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale" once again took the top honours.

Del Toro's success in the best director category came at the expense of Lady Bird writer-director Greta Gerwig, who had also been up for the award.

Rachel Brosnahan won the prize for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which was also voted Best Comedy.

But he agreed that Walmart should have led with the store closures, and discussed the raises and bonuses later. But raising wages is something you could argue Walmart needed to do even in a less-favorable tax environment.

James Franco, who had new sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him earlier in the day, was among the early winners at the Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday, but the actor wasn't on hand to accept his award. "Thank you so much".

"Big Little Lies" was named best limited series and won acting awards for Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern.

Another major accolade of the evening went to Gary Oldman, who practically cemented an Oscar win with yet another Best Actor gong for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour.

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

The annual Critics' Choice Awards furthered the award prospects of "The Shape of Water" with Guillermo del Toro's film taking four awards home, including the best picture and director.

Munn, who hosted the awards show, and Niecy Nash hoisted glasses of champagne onstage to "give a toast to the good men in Hollywood".

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