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

Standing up The Wonder Woman star shared her award'with all women and men who stand for what's right

Gadot accepted the award by noting that throughout her career she has wanted to play strong, independent, real women, and found all those qualities in her role as Wonder Woman.

Gal Gadot is having a pretty Wonder-ful night at the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards.

Wonder Woman also struggles with her own love and hopes, she gets confused, insecure, and she's not flawless.

Also in the same category were "Thor: Ragnarok", "Logan", "Baby Driver" and "War for the Planet of the Apes". "Wonder Woman' director Patty Jenkins presented her with the #SeeHer Award, honouring the actress for challenging female stereotypes on screen and off". Following the film's win at the Critics' Choice Awards, the actress took to Twitter to share her thanks for awarding the film the Best Action Movie distinction.

This wasn't the film's only distinction of the evening, as Gadot earned the #SeeHer award for positive female representation in media.

Gadot also spoke to the recent attention on the harassment epidemic.

"She didn't do it for the glory".

Going on to speak about Hollywood's gender equality, Gal explained, 'When I started acting, there were very few female-led movies, and even fewer female directors.

Wonder Woman stormed the box office upon its release in June, amassing a domestic haul of $412 million on its way to an $821 million worldwide gross, making the film one of the most successful of the year.

'There were eight other films in [the] top 100 which were directed by females, ' added the actress. So although this is progress, there's still a long way to go.

Gal ended her acceptance speech by addressing female-led movements in and around Hollywood, the actress dedicated her award to those fighting for change. "And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality". So as artists, and as filmmakers, I believe it's not only our job to entertain, but our duty to inspire and educate for love and respect.

She continued: 'We wanted her to be universal, to be an inspiration to all people all around the world, and our plan was to make sure we didn't give too much attention to the fact that she's a woman'.

The Wonder Woman movie later during the awards ceremony won Best Action Movie.

Gadot and Jenkins will be teaming up again for a Wonder Woman sequel, slated to hit theaters on November 1.
