Olivia Munn has just landed a new gig.
The 37-year-old X-Men star will host the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards on The CW later this month as was announced by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association.
BFCA President Joey Berlin said in a statement, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Olivia hosting this year’s ceremony, and know that she will deliver an entertaining and sharp-witted evening to everyone in the room, and the viewers at home. Beyond her skills as an actress, Olivia’s work as an activist within the industry gives her a powerful voice, making her the perfect candidate to lead this night honoring the best and brightest in film and television.”
A special honor in the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards will be presented to Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot who will receive the #SeeHer Award which recognizes women who “recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape.”
The Association of National Advertisers’ CEO Bob Liodice said in a statement, “We’re honored to recognize Gal this year with the second annual #SeeHer Award. Not only was she able to challenge stereotypes in film and find success by starring in one of the biggest blockbusters this year, she also used that success to shine a light on her own industry and push the boundaries on gender equality in real life.”
The 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards airs January 11.
