Gal Gadot delivers powerful speech while accepting #SeeHer award

Gal Gadot delivers powerful speech while accepting #SeeHer award

But James Franco was not there to pick up the best actor in a comedy award.

Franco won a similar award at the Golden Globes earlier in the week, where most women dressed in black to protest sexual harassment. More women dressed in colour on Thursday but an outspoken determination to end gender discrimination remained just as fierce.

"I want to thank all of my children who show me so much love", the actress said, opting not to go her usual path in thanking only half her offspring.

Globe victor Guillermo del Toro was on hand to pick up another best director prize for The Shape of Water, which won best picture at the Santa Monica event. While accepting the award, Gadot discussed the importance of making Wonder Woman not only a hero but also a multi-dimensional character to whom everybody - man and woman alike - could relate.

"I think we should pick a singular topic like that to discuss at all of these events to kind of focus it up a little bit, not necessarily just talk about the shows or the projects we're working on, because there's plenty of stuff to talk about", he said. Host Olivia Munn and numerous winners took time to speak out about gender inequality.




Later, Prince was spotted speaking with fellow nominee Jacob Tremblay, 11, who gave her a congratulatory hug. They thanked the studio exec who asked to meet them in the hotel conference room instead of his actual room, and the casting director who didn't say anything derogatory. Congratulations for doing what you're supposed to do! The hit HBO series reigned with four wins, including Best Limited Series prize and Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series for actress Nicole Kidman.

There was never a doubt Olivia was going to deliver when it came to her hosting gig. Thank you for letting me do it all the way through to this age and beyond.

Reese Witherspoon was also nominated for her starring role in the show in the Best Actress category alongside Kidman.

Allison Janney from I, Tonya went home with the Best Supporting Actress in a Movie and her co-star Margot Robbie won the statuette for Best Actress in a Comedy Movie.

The next big awards show is going to be the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which are set to be held on January 21, so let's see how politics shapes that red carpet too.
