As well as thanking her children when accepting her Critics' Choice Award, Nic also shone a light on Big Little Lies co-stars.

Wonder Woman (aka Gal Gadot) does Prada proud, looking gorgeous in this glam silver gown.

Just days ago, the stars were hitting the red carpet in their black dresses at the Golden Globes.

"I love being an actor", said the 50-year-old Oscar victor.

The #SeeHer Award recognizes a woman who seeks "to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape". In her speech, Gadot noted that throughout her career, she always wanted to play the role of a strong and independent character and found all of the qualities she was looking for in Wonder Woman. "She commands the attention of the world, and in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity".

"I want to thank all of my children who show me so much love", she said during her acceptance speech, adding, "I love being an actor. And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality".

Kumail Nanjiani also used his win for the film Big Sick to highlight the issue.

Not everyone was impressed was Emma Roberts" look but we reckon her blunt new "do may have had something to do with it.

We've got the 10 looks above that had everyone talking - for both good and bad reasons.

Perhaps Allison Janney said it best when Munn accosted her in the audience to give her the "Critics' Choice Mother of the Year Award" for her nightmare momager performance in "I, Tonya".

It is far from assured that The Shape of Water, which won best picture at the Critics' Choice Awards, will do the same at the Oscars, since the Oscars employ a preferential ballot, which the Critics' Choice Awards do not, and that can affect things a lot.
