Olivia Munn roasts Mark Wahlberg at 2018 Critics' Choice Awards

There it is! Nicole Kidman wins Best Actress for her role in Big Little Lies at the Critics Choice Awards and dedicates award to'all of her children after failing to mention Isabella and Connor Cruise at the Globes

The comedy categories were a bit different: Although Franco repeated his Golden Globes win for best comedy actor, Margot Robbie (I, Tonya) won the trophy over Saoirse Ronan ("Lady Bird") for best comedy actress.

Among the first of the night to address men's involvement in the initiative was Kumail Nanjiani, who accepted the award for Best Comedy for his and his wife, Emily V. Gordon's, film, The Big Sick.

According to a report in People Magazine, the Why Him? actor has made a decision to step away from the spotlight and is reportedly "in a really bad place".

One source said that on a scale of one to ten, with ten being inconsolable, Franco is at a six.

According to TMZ, he had planned to attend the show, which was held in Santa Monica, CA., but "obviously hard a change of heart".

Five women have accused Franco of "inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior", including pressuring them to go topless, according to the L.A. Times.

Meanwhile, host Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash gave a sarcastic toast to the "good guys" in Hollywood - before slamming the men at the Golden Globes for not speaking out in support of Time's Up.

The women claim Franco "would always make everybody think there were possible roles on the table if we were to perform sexual acts or take off our shirts". Now, the Emmy and Golden Globe champ only needs a Screen Actors Guild Award to complete a sweep of the four major televised awards.

Franco's attorney, Michael Plonsker, denied each of the women's allegations.

"Here's to the male casting directors who didn't ever say anything derogatory to me in an audition", Nash said.

"So I don't want to, you know, shut them down in any way".

"So if I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much", he added.

Hollywood star James Franco is the latest name to be embroiled in sexual allegation claims.
