Olivia Munn sarcastically toasts 'good guys' at Critics Choice awards

Following his Golden Globe win on Sunday, there have been some accusations of sexual misconduct made against him. Thank you.... When I started my career, I couldn't get to the reviews fast enough.

The 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards are underway with Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water leading the nominations on the film side with 14, while FX's Feud: Bette and Joan on top for television with six nods. "You don't know what you are missing!"

Starring Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Shannon, the film also picked up the Best Director, Best Production Design and Best Score prizes.

Critics' Choice Awards host Olivia Munn took aim at Mark Wahlberg on Thursday night (11Jan17) over claims he got paid more than Michelle Williams for their All the Money in the World reshoots.

First, Munn and Nash sarcastically praised men who call meetings with women in conference rooms rather than their hotel rooms, referencing the numerous allegations against once-powerful producer Harvey Weinstein.

"Congratulations for doing what you're supposed to do!"

Kidman thanked the entertainment community "who show up to make really fantastic films and TV and let us do what we love". "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond".

The Handmaid's Tale was named Best Drama Series.

Dressed in a attractive pink gown, she accepted the speech "on behalf of all the women in this cast". She also urged people to visit the Time's Up website and donate to the Legal Defense Fund. "Just that was great, but we have to keep it going". "That conversation continues today", Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) told USA TODAY.

Presenter Chris Hemsworth noted that women have had a stellar year at the box office.

Kumail Nanjiani, who created and co-wrote The Big Sick, said during an acceptance speech for Best Comedy, "I think as men, we have been talking for centuries, it's time for us to shut up, listen and amplify". "The biggest comedy was a female ensemble, Girls Trip, and the biggest independent movie was written and directed by Greta Gerwig".

Frances McDormand won the best actress award for her portrayal of a mother seeking answers for her daughter's death in the movie Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
