Black was a way for celebrities to show solidarity with victims of sexual harassment, as well as embrace the death of outdated and misogynistic Hollywood practices - black is the colour of mourning after all.

The film wasn't deemed the best comedy, though: That award went to "The Big Sick".

The sentiment was in stark contrast to Nicole's speech at the Golden Globes, where she was criticised for only mentioning her two youngest kids, Faith, 7, and Sunday, 9, fathered by Urban.

"This is such a big honor, all the nominees are great", she said.

The more I talk to Academy members, the more I hear rumblings about this summer's biggest hit - if not because it's a cinematic work of art, then because no movie better captures this new era of female empowerment.

The Wonder Women's speech can be counted in such category easily.

RuPaul, Shark Tank, The Voice, and Born This Way took the top honours for Reality Television shows. As Munn kept it going way too long, though, she finally had to ask, "What's happening here?" For this, everyone who won an award had to hear the playoff music after, like, 30 seconds of talking?

Moss thanked critics for "embracing the show from the beginning" as she accepted the award. Thanks to a tight schedule, we heard a lot of the Critics' Choice Awards playoff music, and it was the same interminable dirge each time. James Franco won yet another award for his role in "The Disaster Artist", as Best Actor in a Comedy, though he was unable to be at the event to accept the award given that recent serious allegations against him have encouraged him to stay out of the spotlight for the time being.

Guillermo del Toro is going to be hard to beat in the best director race. Should he bag the best director Oscar, he will be its fourth Mexican victor in the last five years, with all four wins spread among "The Three Amigos" (Alfonso Cuaron won for Gravity in 2014 and Alejandro G. Inarritu won for Birdman in 2015 and The Revenant in 2016). "It really felt like a community talking about a problem that they all have".
