Did no one tell these folks that the critics of the Critics' Choice Awards don't refer to them?

The Isreali actor was presented with the prestigious award, which recognises women who push the boundaries in entertainment, for her performance in Wonder Woman.

As she accepted her award, Brosnahan noted that even though women aren't wearing black like most did at the Golden Globe Awards earlier in the week, she said the fight to eradicate sexual harassment continues. Last year Weta Digital won the category for its work on the Disney reboot of The Jungle Book. Dressed in a cute red dress, she addressed the audience, sobbing, with one of the most honest speeches we've ever heard.

Nicole Kidman's great awards run continued Thursday when she won Best TV Movie/Limited Series Actress for "Big Little Lies" at the Critics' Choice Awards.

"This year, three of the top-grossing films were female led and one of them was directed by my wonderful Patty Jenkins".

"And the critics choice for the best picture goes to The Shape of Water".

James Franco followed up his Golden Globes win on Sunday by picking up Best Actor in a Comedy for The Disaster Artist, but he was a no show at the ceremony.
