Olivia Munn roasts Mark Wahlberg at 2018 Critics' Choice Awards

Ahead of its fourth season, A&E Network's "Born This Way" won a Critics' Choice Award.

However, it was Gal Gadot that really took the spotlight when she collected the SeeHer award in a silver shimmering Prada number.

Not everyone opted to wear white, and a number of the stars chose brightly-coloured gowns following the black code at the Golden Globes.

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

"I love being an actor", said the 50-year-old Oscar victor.

Gadot spoke of the importance of the character to her and the world.

Wonder Woman was one of the biggest films of 2017, earning positive critical acclaim and pushing past $3 billion at the worldwide box office.

Besides attending the Critics Choice Awards Chris also accepted Frances Mcdormand best actress award for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri on her behalf.

Kumail Nanjiani also used his win for the film Big Sick to highlight the issue. "I think, as men, we've been talking for centuries".

Chris, who attended the awards ceremony on Thursday with his older brother Luke Hemsworth, looked dapper in a midnight blue suit. "She did it for us", Patty explained. Later, I was cast as Wonder Woman and all of these qualities I looked for, I found in her.

Tony says the big victor of the evening was 'The Shape of Water, ' taking home 4 awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Production Design and Best Score.

"There's that sad music again", Gary Oldman said when it started in on him after his win for "Darkest Hour", but it didn't stop him.
