The 2018 Critics' Choice Awards celebrated the best in television and film from the past year, but also - thanks to a select few - also touched on the importance of equality within the industry and the Time's Up initiative, which supports the victims of sexual harassment and misconduct.

If Kidman is finally victorious at SAG, she'd be the fourth person to bag the Emmy, Globe, Critics' Choice Award and SAG for a TV movie/limited series performance after Julianne Moore ("Game Change"), Michael Douglas ("Behind the Candelabra") and Sarah Paulson ("The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story"). In her acceptance speech, she shared the award with "all the women and men who stand for what's right".

Actress Violet Paley and filmmaker Sarah Tither-Kaplan recently accused Franco on Twitter, "Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes, remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it?"

"Big Little Lies" received four awards: best limited series, as well as acting honors for Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern.

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

Guillermo del Toro's fantasy romance, "The Shape of Water", was the top film victor with four awards.

She said: "The whole process of making this film inspired me and I hope it inspires others".

Hemsworth presented the best actress award to an absent Frances McDormand for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". The accusations came after Franco won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, but he says they are completely untrue. Bloom said. "He can take it".

"So if I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much", he added. I don't want to shut them down in any way.
