However, it was Gal Gadot that really took the spotlight when she collected the SeeHer award in a silver shimmering Prada number. She commands the attention of the world and in doing so, she sends a positive example for humanity.
Wonder Woman was one of the biggest films of 2017, earning positive critical acclaim and pushing past $3 billion at the worldwide box office. She concluded with an uplifting message: "I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right, for those who can't stand or speak for themselves".
"I would like to dedicate this award to all the Moonees out there", she said. It was an incredible feat for the film, which also came out on top at the Golden Globes and is one of the biggest contenders for the forthcoming BAFTAs.
And Nicole made sure all eyes were on her when she arrived at the Critics' Choice Awards 2018 in Los Angeles last night.
"We're very happy that our movie's coming out in a year when Hollywood's having a lot of hard conversations with itself and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long".
