Awards season is officially in full swing, and with the Golden Globes behind us (seriously, how great was Sandra Oh?), now it's all about the 2019 Critics' Choice Awards on Jan. 13. Before the (very rare) host Taye Diggs could kick things off, each nominee had to strut their stuff down the red carpet, and they did not disappoint. While there were some notable absences (Lin-Manuel Miranda, Chadwick Boseman, and Julia Roberts were not nominated for their work), it was still as star-studded as ever.

Whether you are covering awards season like us here at InStyle.com or simply watching from your couch, it’s undeniable: This awards season has been different from any we’ve seen before. At the Globes, we saw waves of black dresses walk the red carpet in support of the #TimesUp movement. It was chill-inducing to see how powerful such a visual stance could be. And it didn’t take away from the fashion either. Actress after actress stunned, and showed her unique personal style, albeit in the same shade as her sister. “The #TimesUp movement has been deeply inspiring and absolutely critical,” Kate Bosworth told InStyle.com days after the Globes, as she got ready for the Critics Choice Awards. “No one in the workplace should feel vulnerable from an abuse of power, harassed, or diminished. It has also been incredibly inspiring to see such an extraordinary group of women come together. Historically, actresses have been made to feel competitive or insecure about one another. I have always tried to champion a feeling of “inclusiveness” in the industry.”
Sunday night’s Golden Globes kicked off the 2018 award show season in style, and it’s quickly followed up by another event honoring the best in movies and television: the Critics’ Choice Awards. The show, hosted by actress Olivia Munn, broadcasts live on Thursday night from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. on The CW Network starting at 8 p.m. ET. Wonder Woman Gal Gadot will receive the #SeeHer Award, presented by director Patty Jenkins. “Gadot broke through this year as a powerful voice advocating for women, not only on screen as the iconic Wonder Woman, but in life as well, using her platform to encourage those in the entertainment industry and beyond to strive for fairness and parity across genders,” the Critics' Choice Awards said in a statement. Along with these stunning actresses, stars like Chris Hemsworth, Kate Bosworth, Kaley Cuoco, Natalia Dyer, Sarah Hyland, Nick Jonas, and more will present at the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. During last year's show, two of our favorite Ryans (Reynolds and Gosling) shared an adorable moment together, and we can't wait to see what the stars get up to during this year's broadcast. During the 2018 Golden Globes, almost every star wore black on the red carpet in solidarity with Time’s Up to protest sexual harassment.
