Olivia Munn isn't anxious about hosting after speaking out

Olivia Munn isn't anxious about hosting after speaking out

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.

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. Thanks to a tight schedule, we heard a lot of the Critics' Choice Awards playoff music, and it was the same interminable dirge each time.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association announced on January 3 that Munn would host their annual gala.

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

Darkest Hour won awards for makeup and lead actor for Gary Oldman. Also, actresses Allison Janney and Margot Robbie both won individual awards for their portrayals in the film, I, Tonya. Fans were upset when Get Out, which masterfully mixes humour and horror to drive home a powerful point about racial inequality, didn't win any Golden Globe awards despite its two nominations. They and the other members of the cast were also named Best Ensemble in a Movie.

"Shape of Water" also nabbed Best Director for Guillermo del Toro, Best Production Design for Paul Denham Austerberry, Shane Vieau and Jeff Melvin, and Best Score for Alexandre Desplat.

"I want to thank all of my children who show me so much love", she said during her acceptance speech, adding, "I love being an actor". Her co-star Sam Rockwell continued the winning streak by picking up the Best Supporting Actor award.

From the romantic-fantasy film The Shape of Water to the critically acclaimed biopic I, Tonya, the Critics Choice Awards celebrated some of the industries' best while also acknowledging some of their worst.

Yet Gerwig still had reason to celebrate on Thursday, having been named as one of the five film-makers up for the Directors Guild of America's best director award.

For Best Original Screenplay and Best Thriller, director Jordan Peele won for his breakout film Get Out.
