Host Olivia Munn teamed up with Niecy Nash for a bit in which the duo gave a toast to the men of Hollywood who weren't secretly bad, like the people who didn't ask for meetings in hotel rooms, or the famous actors who didn't treat women "like crap", Munn quipped. You know, the ones who don't hold business meetings in their robes in hotel rooms or treat women "like crap". Munn said, "Way to be regular human beings, guys!" Fury Road may not have won Best Director or Best Picture, but earning a nomination at all was a breakthrough for a genre relegated to merely being only "popcorn" movies.

I mean, could we love the woman anymore right now? "We need to shut up, listen and amplify".

The actress shared the official envelope declaring the film the victor, including the caption, "Thank you to the Critics for recognizing Wonder Woman as best action movie!".

Gal was presented with the award by her "Wonder Woman" director, Patty Jenkins, and she kicked off her speech by praising the work of female filmmakers, but admitted there is still "a long way to go" for gender equality in Hollywood.

The first SeeHer Award was presented past year to Viola Davis.

I'm sure that to some, it will seem unusual that a superhero is being held up as an "accurate portrayal" of women.

Throughout my career, I was always asked to describe my dream role. And it was clear to me that I wanted to portray a strong and independent woman-a real one.

Accepting the award, Gadot said, "Wonder Woman also struggles with her own love and hopes, she gets confused, insecure, and she's not flawless".

The slender star showed off her impeccable pins with her long black tapered pants, with sophisticated black sparkling heels to tied the ultra glam look together.

Gadot continued: "She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness".

Passport may not work as address proof anymore

'She sees wrong that must be made right.

The sparkling ensemble boasted a racy plunging neckline and lightly cinched to showcase Gal's tiny waist as she excitedly took to the stage to start acting out the hit tune. "She commands the attention of the world, and in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity", she said. She added that, in the making of "Wonder Woman", the goal was for her character to be a universal hero for all. She gets confused, insecure, and she's not ideal.

Gadot also spoke to the recent attention on the harassment epidemic. In the past weeks and months, we've been witnessing a movement in our industry and society.

The actress said that she wanted to dedicate the award to all the men and women who stood up for what's right and took a stand for those who were unable to stand or speak for themselves.
