The best television shows and films were honoured at the 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards, held at Santa Monica Airport's Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on Thursday night (11 January).

On the film side, The Shape of Water directed by Guillermo del Toro led the nominations in 14 categories, while for television, FX's Feud: Bette and Joan led with six nominations.

James Franco, who was accused of sexual assault right after his 2018 Golden Globe win for his movie The Disaster Artist, also won an award for best actor in a comedy for the same film, which he directed and starred in. Franco, however, was not in attendance to accept the award.

Gal Gadot was honoured with the #SeeHer Award for challenging female stereotypes on and off the screen. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins presented her with the special award at the show.
