'Shape of Water,' 'Handmaid's Tale' take top Critics' Choice Awards

Blige, Guillermo del Toro and Liev Schreiber were among the guests and nominees walking the blue carpet at the star-studded Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica. Those walking away with film trophies are often seen as favorites to win at the upcoming Academy Awards, which are March 4 this year.

Big Little Lies received four awards: best limited series, as well as acting honours for Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern.

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

Munn is hosting the Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday.

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

"Blade Runner 2049", "Call Me By Your Name", "In The Fade", "Phantom Thread", "War for the Planet of the Apes" and "The Florida Project" also got accolades, with "Baby Driver" and "Dunkirk" being the only films to tie for an award (Best Editing).

In her speech, the 50-year-old-actress added, "I love being an actor. Although it is work, and you're wanting to put on a good show and all that, but I've been through scarier things".

Olivia Munn gave Mark Wahlberg a bit of a roasting while hosting the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday night. Winners are signified by an asterisk (*) and boldface type. Darkest Hour won awards for makeup and lead actor for Gary Oldman. Coco won animated feature and original song for Remember Me. Many people also took issue with the fact that the film was entered as a comedy for the Globes alongside less-serious movies like The Greatest Showman.

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.

Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel won the Best Actress in Comedy (TV) while the show picked up the Best comedy series award as well.

At one point during the show, she was joined by comedian Niecy Nash for a tongue-in-cheek "Toast to the Good Guys" bit, appreciating all the men who behaved themselves in 2017.
