The Critics' Choice Awards ceremony Thursday night wasn't a sea of black like Sunday's Golden Globes, yet the presence of #MeToo was also felt throughout.

"Yes! Congratulations for doing what you're supposed to do", Nash said.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who picked up a best comedy award at Critics' Choice, echoed the hope that the conversation and movement would continue to make an impact.

The Best Comedy Movie honor went to The Big Sick and Wonder Woman was deemed Best Action Movie.

"I have no time at all to say thank you, but I just want to say how inspirational it's been to be here in this room tonight".

"The thing is weirdly, without trying, it kind of is reflecting what's going on because - women's struggles in the workplace, women's struggles in the entertainment industry, women in comedy", Sherman-Palladino said.

Chris Hemsworth, Kaley Cuoco, Anthony Anderson, Nick Jonas, Kate Bosworth and Alison Brie are among the stars set to present at the ceremony, which will be broadcast on the CW network.

"The three biggest movies of 2017 in North America were Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Beauty and the Beast and Wonder Woman", which all feature female protagonists, he said.

Both Gary Oldman ("Darkest Hour") and Frances McDormand ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri") repeated their Golden Globes wins by taking home the Best Actor and Best Actress trophies, respectively.

Critics' Choice Awards victor Nicole Kidman wore pink. The film also won for acting ensemble and supporting actor for Sam Rockwell.

The 50-year-old won the award for Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series and, this time around, made sure to thank all four of her children.

Brooklynn Prince, the young breakout star of acclaimed drama The Florida Project, tearfully thanked God upon winning Best Young Actor/Actress at Thursday night's awards show and offered up an invitation to dessert afterward.

For this awards season we're eschewing some of the standard fare of previous years-consistent "Best Dressed" roundups, for example-to focus on spotlighting the ways women are changing Hollywood, from record-breaking awards to the characters redefining how woman are portrayed onscreen.
