Who said award shows are boring?
During the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday, January 13, four actresses tied in two major categories, and their reactions were inspirational.
Lady Gaga was honored with Best Actress in a Motion Picture for her performance in A Star Is Born. She went on to tie in the category with Glenn Close, who won for her performance in The Wife.
The tie was especially delightful because Close won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Drama the week prior (some fans felt Lady Gaga deserved the honor).
“I am so thrilled it’s a tie, I can’t tell you,” Close shared. “I was thinking that, you know, the world kind of pits us against each other in this profession and I know that from all the women in this category, and I think I can speak for all the women in this room, we celebrate each other.”
“We are proud to be in this room together,” she said.
“I’m so very happy that you won this this evening,” Gaga told Close. “This is a tremendous honor.” She went on to acknowledge her ASIB co-star, Bradley Cooper.
“Bradley, you are a magical filmmaker, and you are just as magical of a human being,” she said. “I’ve never had an experience with a director or an actor like I had with you and I will cherish it forever.”
