Critics' Choice Awards: Gary Oldman receives another best actor prize

Writer/director Jordan Peele was also a big victor at the Critics' Choice Awards on Thursday night, claiming the Best Original Screenplay prize for Get Out, which was also named the Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. The series, which tackled mysterious murder and domestic violence, also earned Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern best supporting actor and actress in limited series respectively.

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. The Hulu series was also announced as the Best Drama Series at the event. Margot Robbie won the best actress in a comedy trophy. Many could not believe that Franco won the Critics' Choice Award in the wake of the Times story, but the reality is that voters had not seen the Times story prior to the close of voting on Tuesday night, so Franco's off-screen conduct wasn't a consideration for many. God, I would like to thank you for this opportunity.

Bruce Miller, creator of "The Handmaid's Tale", which won best drama at the awards show, sported the Time's Up pin, saying he felt that with the #MeToo movement, "everyone got together".

The fantasy thriller was named Best Picture, while Guillermo del Toro picked up the prize for Best Director. They and the other members of the cast were also named Best Ensemble in a Movie.
