Wonder Woman continues to pull in the awards, this time winning Best Action Movie at the Critics Choice Awards tonight.
The film was up against some incredibly stiff competition, going head-to-head with Baby Driver, War for the Planet of the Apes, and two other superhero films, Thor: Ragnarokand Logan. All five of the nominees were major hits with critics and audiences alike, so it’s a remarkable feat that Wonder Woman was able to pull off the victory.
Further cementing the impact Wonder Woman had on 2017, star Gal Gadot was awarded the #SeeHer Award by director Patty Jenkins, honoring the actress for challenging female stereotypes.
Oscar nominations are still a few weeks out, and while it may be considered a long shot for any major awards at that ceremony, Wonder Woman has been pulling in other important nominations and wins, such as tonight’s Best Action Movie award and a Best Picture nomination from the Producers Guild of America.
