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

The awards are handed out annually by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, two groups representing journalists who cover film and television. Munn said, "Way to be regular human beings, guys!"

Get Out was named Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and won the Best Original Screenplay title. With five Critics' Choice nominations, including best picture and best actor for Daniel Kaluuya, the dark-comedy-horror-satire film is gaining recognition and appreciation in the industry, and rightfully so. The Hulu series was also announced as the Best Drama Series at the event. She then went on to thank those who had made her win possible.

"Say what?" Nash asked, to which Munn replied: "I know, he took a pay cut. It really is an incredible honor".

There may be a dark cloud hanging over Hollywood right now.

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

The white theme could indicate a theme of innocence and purity, giving the message that women who share their sexual assault stories should be listened to, instead of doubted.

The Golden Globe victor received the honour for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Winston Churchill. The seven-year-old actress cried tears of joy after she beat off competition from "Gifted" star McKenna Grace, "Logan" actress Dafne Keen", "Wonderstruck's Millicent Simmonds, and "Wonder" actor Jacob Tremblay to pick up the Best Young Performer honour for her role as Moonee in "The Florida Project" at the annual ceremony last Thursday (11.01.18).

The Big Sick won the award for Best Comedy Movie.

RuPaul, Shark Tank, The Voice, and Born This Way took the top honours for Reality Television shows. "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot will accept the award from director Patty Jenkins.

The Golden Globe victor received the honour for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Winston Churchill. Should he bag the best director Oscar, he will be its fourth Mexican victor in the last five years, with all four wins spread among "The Three Amigos" (Alfonso Cuaron won for Gravity in 2014 and Alejandro G. Inarritu won for Birdman in 2015 and The Revenant in 2016). They also jokingly thanked the men of Hollywood who haven't acted inappropriately towards their female co-workers.

Kumail Nanjiani was the first celebrity to hit the stage after winning an award on Thursday night, so perhaps he was trying to set a better precedent for the men who would follow. Mark Bridges of Daniel Day-Lewis' Phantom Thread won Best Costume Design.

Legendary Roger Deakins won Best Cinematography for his work in Blade Runner 2049.

It was a tie between Paul Machliss, Jonathan Amos of Baby Driver and Lee Smith of Dunkirk for Best Editing.
