Director Patty Jenkins explained during the award ceremony why Hollywood actress was more than deserving of the second annual #SeeHer Award.
This is not the first time the Lebanese have spoken out against Gadot though. Also, the former is a Palestinian ally, which further explains why Lebanese people disapprove of Saab touting a famous Israeli client. She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness. She commands the attention of the world and in doing so, she sends a positive example for humanity. But the really special thing is, she didn't do it for the glory.
Gadot added that when she began her career, there were very few female-led films, and even fewer female directors.
When Wonder Woman - the smash superhero hit of the summer - was released, Lebanon moved to ban the film since Gadot is an IDF veteran. There were eight other films in the top 100 which were directed by females.
Gadot's speech highlighted the fact that Wonder Woman was meant to inspire everyone. Someone told her that his three-year-old saw the movie, and when the movie ended, the boy said, "When I grow up, I want to be a woman!" "So although this is progress, there's still a long way to go", Gal said. "My promise and commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced and we will continue to band together to make strides.for equality", she said to thunderous applause.
Alongside Gadot's award, Wonder Woman received three Critics' Choice nominations, for costume design, visual effects, and best action movie.
