Wonder Woman Star Gal Gadot Delivers Powerful Critics' Choice Awards Speech

Gal Gadot Critics Choice

Wonder Woman's win was not the only highlight from the Critics Choice Awards, with regard to Gadot.

The Isreali actor was presented with the prestigious award, which recognises women who push the boundaries in entertainment, for her performance in Wonder Woman. Several Lebanese people took to social media to call out Saab for dressing Gadot and for complimenting her.

Also in the same category were "Thor: Ragnarok", "Logan", "Baby Driver" and "War for the Planet of the Apes".

Director Patty Jenkins introduced the actress, praising her performance in the film (which also won Best Action Movie) and saying, "In her hands, Wonder Woman came back to life in all of her glory and is inspiring the world again". And in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity. And that's what makes her real.

Gavin Newsom calls on President Trump to resign over vulgar comment
Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so. An African Union spokeswoman told The Associated Press it was "frankly alarmed" by the US president's comments.

"In the past weeks and months, we've been witnessing a movement in our industry and society, and I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what's right: Standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves".

Turning her attention to the Time's Up and #MeToo movements, which strive to quash systemic sexual harassment and abuse running through Hollywood and other industries, Gadot pledged her support. And we will continue, band together, to make strides uniting for equality.

The image of the Wonder Woman star in a blue sash dress by Saab and was accompanied by a description of the former Israel Defense Forces combat trainer as "flawless". But in her acceptance speech, Gadot says what we already knew: Diana Prince may be an Amazon, but there's a reason why she spoke to so many women, why audiences of all genders connected with her. The actress said, "This year, three of the top-grossing films were female led and one of them was directed by my wonderful Patty Jenkins".

'There were eight other films in [the] top 100 which were directed by females, ' added the actress.

Trump acknowledges 'tough' language but appears to deny 'shithole' remark
Another White House source explained the language Trump used as his way of trying to emphasize his support for a merit-based immigration system.

Gadot was clear, though, that Hollywood still has a long way to go to reach true equity.

Gal continued: 'As artists and filmmakers, I believe it's not only our job to entertain, but to inspire and educate for love and respect.

In or out of costume, Gadot-and Jenkins-is a true Wonder Woman.
