Critics' Choice Awards: Gal Gadot delivers powerful acceptance speech

Wonder Woman's win was not the only highlight from the Critics Choice Awards, with regard to Gadot.

The award is organized by the Association of National Advertisers and honors a woman who helps "push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape". As per E! Online, Gadot accepted the award by saying, "The irony in this is that later I was cast as Wonder Woman and all the qualities that I looked for I found in her. She knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done", said Jenkins before presenting the award to Gadot, who led the film that would cross the $5 billion mark at the global box office in 2017.

She also took a moment to highlight the improvements in female representation and the continuing need for more.

The actress, who recently was revealed as the new brand ambassador for Revlon, believes that anything which makes women feel "confident" should be classed as feminism.

Wonder Woman it seems was that role for Gal, with the actress explaining, 'She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness.

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

Gadot also made reference to the recent weeks, during which a number of sexual assault allegations have surfaced in relation to heavy hitters including Harvey Weinstein, Stan Lee, and James Franco.

That's right; a woman-led, woman-directed movie won "best of" in a genre that historically, and even still largely excludes women.

In addition to Gadot's tribute, Wonder Woman received three Critics' Choice nominations, for best action movie, visual effects, and costume design.

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. "So although this is progress, there's still a long way to go", Gal said. She concluded her inspiring acceptance speech with a commitment to "never be silenced" and continue to work together toward a common goal of equality. "The whole process of creating this film inspired me, and I hope we managed to inspire others". Both Jenkins and Gadot are on board to return for Wonder Woman 2, which is scheduled to hit theaters November 1, 2019.
