Rose McGowan Targets 'A--hole' James Franco After Critics' Choice Awards Win

The dark shadow was lifted at the Critics' Choice Awards, in the wake of celebrities donning black to support victims of sexual harassment at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

Director Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water jumped into the awards glory position, taking best picture (along with best director, production design and score) after Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri dominated at the Globes. In her acceptance speech, she shared the award with "all the women and men who stand for what's right".

Awards darling The Shape Of Water, which won two Golden Globes out of seven nominations and leads the way with 12 BAFTA nods, came home with the biggest win of the night.

Stories about women also won in comedy categories.

But veteran Broadcast Film Critics Association president and show executive producer Joey Berlin told us, "Fake news".

Weta Digital's work beat nominees such as Blade Runner 2049, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water, Thor: Ragnarok and Wonder Woman, making it a ideal run as it received the same award for the two previous films in the Planet of The Apes trilogy. "Say what?" Nash asked, to which Munn replied: "I know, he took a pay cut".

On TV, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale picked up Best Drama and Best Actress for star Elizabeth Moss, while Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won Best Comedy and Best Actress for its star Rachel Brosnahan. And I think, as men, we've been talking for centuries.

"I, Tonya" brought acting accolades for star Margot Robbie and supporting actress Allison Janney.

Embroiled in a growing controversy following a bombshell Los Angeles Times report detailing accusations of sexual misconduct, Franco didn't show up to accept his award. "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond". "They helped us get the word out so quickly".
