Critics' Choice Awards Best Dressed: Gal Gadot & More Stun In Gorgeous Gowns

Gal Gadot in Lebanese designer sparks backlash

But all too few.

After her big win, the young star even got a hug and some one-on-one time with none other than Angelina Jolie. "I wore this because it makes me feel fabulous", she said. With Hollywood - the men also wore black - coming together in an extraordinary show of unity to talk about the problem of sexual abuse.

Having donned an all-black ensemble at the Golden Globes in solidarity with the Time's Up movement, the 50-year-old opted for a hot pink number this time. Categories like Editing, Adapted Screenplay, and Director have had only one victor who identifies a female since 2009; there have been zero female winners for Original Screenplay in that time. When Gadot was originally announced as the recipient in December, the Association of National Advertisers - which sponsored the award - called her a "powerful voice advocating for women, not only on screen as the iconic Wonder Woman but in life as well".

Here are our favorite looks of the night. The emotion or action of a scene can be made or broken with what sounds the audiences take in and that's why scores are so important to these characters.

'My promise and my commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced.

In one of the night's most inspired segments, Munn and Nash raised a "Toast to the Good Guys".

"I'd like to raise a glass to that studio executive who had me meet him in the studio conference room, instead of his actual hotel room".

Munn had to cut her off at this point. "Then they say after the dark comes the light". Ouch, but yeah, she's totally right.

The industry's ongoing sexual misconduct crisis impinged on Thursday's ceremony, however, as James Franco won an acting award hours after the publication of a report detailing misconduct allegations against The Disaster Artist star and director.

"We're very happy that our movie's coming out in a year when Hollywood's having a lot of hard conversations with itself and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long".

"God, I would like to thank you for this wonderful opportunity and I would like to thank Sean [Baker, the director] for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be his Mooney", noted Prince.
