Rose McGowan called out James Franco and "selectively dead Hollywood" for giving him another acting honor Thursday night at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday, despite sexual misconduct allegations from five different women.

Alongside Gadot's award, "Wonder Woman" received three Critics' Choice nominations, for costume design, visual effects, and best action movie.

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?"

When James Franco's name was read out as the victor of Best Actor in a Comedy for "The Disaster Artist" at last night's Critics' Choice Awards, he wasn't there to accept. Beyond that, there is a massive amount of affection in the community for its director, Patty Jenkins, and its leading lady, Gal Gadot - the latter is now the biggest movie star in the world - who have been at as many awards ceremonies as anyone this year.

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.

"I want to say "thank you" to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money and Mark Wahlberg a million dollars", Munn said.

James Franco followed up his Golden Globes win on Sunday by picking up Best Actor in a Comedy for The Disaster Artist, but he was a no show at the ceremony.

Rachel Brosnahan, who won best TV comedy actress for Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel reminded everyone not to "lose focus" on the Time's Up initiative, a recently-created legal fund to fight sexual harassment. "Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond". "Darkest Hour" won awards for makeup and lead actor for Gary Oldman. "They helped us get the word out so quickly".
