The Shape of Water wins big at Critics' Choice Awards

Gal Gadot center Patty Jenkins and the crew of Wonder Woman accept the award for best action movie at the 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar on Thursday in Santa Monica Calif

While actors and actresses did not black out the Critics' Choice Awards red carpet as they did at Sunday's Golden Globes, the Time's Up and #WhyWeWearBlack message carried over to Thursday's show.

A number of awards have already been unceremoniously presented off the telecast, relegated to a streamed pre-show - a full third of them, in fact.

Noticeably absent from the ceremony was actor James Franco, who won Best Actor in a Comedy for the film The Disaster Artist. This is Us standout Sterling K. Brown was elected Best Actor in a Drama Series.

The other multiple winners were Best Drama Series "The Handmaid's Tale", which also got Best Actress in a Drama (Elisabath Moss) and Supporting Actress (Ann Dowd), and Best Comedy Series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", which also took home Best Actress in a Comedy Series (Rachel Brosnahan).

The Florida Project, which was also nominated for Best Picture on Thursday, features Brooklynn as Moonee, a girl who lives with her troubled mother in a motel in Florida and follows their struggles to stay together.

US House of Representatives Passes Bill Renewing FISA Surveillance Program
Trump's tweets on surveillance marked the second time this week that he appeared to veer from the administration's position. The White House's efforts to portray Donald Trump as a fully engaged, compos mentis president hit a speed bump on Thursday.

Saoirse has also received a Best Leading Actress nod for this year's Bafta Awards. Many could not believe that Franco won the Critics' Choice Award in the wake of the Times story, but the reality is that voters had not seen the Times story prior to the close of voting on Tuesday night, so Franco's off-screen conduct wasn't a consideration for many. "Although it is work, and you're wanting to put on a good show and all that, but I've been through scarier things". Get Out was named best sci-fi or horror film, and writer-director Jordan Peele claimed original screenplay honours.

Another major accolade of the evening went to Gary Oldman, who practically cemented an Oscar win with yet another Best Actor gong for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour. Her co-star Sam Rockwell continued the winning streak by picking up the Best Supporting Actor award.

"The winners for the 2018 Critics" Choice Awards are in, with "The Shape Of Water" taking home four prizes including Best Director (Guillermo del Toro), Best Production Design and Best Score.

Meanwhile Allison Janney, who won an award for I, Tonya, opted for a bold, blue floor-length dress.
