Awards season is officially in full swing.

Just one week after the 2019 Golden Globes, ballots were cast yet again for the 2019 Critics Choice Awards. The show, aired on The CW and hosted by Taye Diggs, handed out accolades to achievements in both film and television.

The Favourite, which stars Golden Globe winner Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Joe Alwyn, leads the pack with 14 nominations, including Best Picture. Black Panther followed close behind with 12 nominations and First Man with 10. Movies with nine nods include A Star Is Born, Vice and Mary Poppins Returns.

The foreign-language film ROMA had a big night at the show as the movie won Best Picture and Best Director. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Vice were other big winners on Sunday.

In a unique turn of events, there were two ties in two separate categories. Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette were co-winners in the Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television category. They shared the stage and took turns giving their thanks. Towards the end of the show, Lady Gaga and Glenn Close tied for Best Actress and both women gave powerful and rousing speeches to the crowd.
