Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' wins Best Original Screenplay at Critics' Choice Awards

Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' wins Best Original Screenplay at Critics' Choice Awards

The Critics' Choice Awards 2018, featuring Olivia Munn as host.

"Wonder Woman" was named best action movie and its star Gal Gadot accepted a special award for challenging gender stereotypes.

This comes after the star got slammed for failing to mention her two adopted children, Isabella and Connor with ex-Tom Cruise, at the Golden Globes.

The Isreali actor was presented with the prestigious award, which recognises women who push the boundaries in entertainment, for her performance in Wonder Woman. She commands the attention of the world and in doing so, she sends a positive example for humanity.

"I would like to dedicate this award to all the Moonees out there", she said.

THE Golden Globes hit headlines for everyone wearing black in support of sexual assault victims - but last night's Critics' Choice had a powerful colour theme of its own.

She said, "Wow, this is such an honor but I would like". My commitment to all of you is I will never be silenced and we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality'. And I think, as men, we've been talking for centuries. "It's time for us to shut up, listen, and amplify". Hopefully these are just the first of many awards the movie will receive. "She did it for us", Patty explained.

Guillermo del Toro's fantasy romance The Shape of Water walked away with four wins, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Diane Kruger wore a simple white Vera Wang dress with chain-mail detail, and Kate Bosworth showed her love of all things vintage in a bridal-esque Brock Collection lace gown. James Franco won yet another award for his role in "The Disaster Artist", as Best Actor in a Comedy, though he was unable to be at the event to accept the award given that recent serious allegations against him have encouraged him to stay out of the spotlight for the time being.
