Olivia Munn will host the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards.

The 'X‑Men: Apocalypse' star is set to take the helm of the annual awards ceremony for 2018, when it takes place on January 11 at Santa Monica Airport's Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

BFCA president Joey Berlin said: "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."

It comes after it was revealed Gal Gadot will be receiving the the #SeeHer award at the Critics' Choice Awards for "pushing boundaries" for women in Hollywood.

A spokesperson said in a statement: "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."

Whilst Association of National Advertisers CEO Bob Liodice added: "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 take place on January 11.
