Dou­bly de­lighted at award

Townsville Bulletin - - CLASSIFIEDS -

IT SEEMS the Broad­cast Film Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion finds it a lit­tle hard to com­mit.

In a rare twist, Glenn Close and Lady Gaga were crowned best ac­tress at yes­ter­day’s Crit­ics’ Choice Awards in Los An­ge­les, in what was the sec­ond tie of the evening.

Close, for The Wife, who bested the A Star Is Born ac­tor for the same award at the Golden Globes last week, said on stage: “I am so thrilled, a tie. The world pits us against each other in this pro­fes­sion. And I know, from the other women in this cat­e­gory, we cel­e­brate each other.”

Af­ter be­ing an­nounced as the sec­ond win­ner, Gaga, who also won best orig­i­nal song for Shal­low, broke down in tears, spilt her wa­ter and tripped on her way up to the stage.

In the press room, she said: “I am in shock this evening to be hon­oured as both a mu­si­cian and an ac­tress.

“It was my great­est dream to be an ac­tor and I gave it up but here I am now with Glenn Close.”

Ear­lier Amy Adams and Pa­tri­cia Ar­quette tied for best ac­tress in a lim­ited se­ries, for Sharp Ob­jects and Es­cape At Dan­nemora re­spec­tively.

Chris­tian Bale took home best ac­tor and best ac­tor in a com­edy for his por­trayal of Dick Cheney in Vice.

But it was Roma’s night, win­ning best pic­ture, best for­eign film and an­other best di­rec­tor gong for Mex­ico’s Al­fonso Cuaron.

“This bunch of Mex­i­cans are not as bad as some­times they are por­trayed,” Cuaron said, also thank­ing dis­trib­u­tor Net­flix.

Regina King beat out Nicole Kid­man as best sup­port­ing ac­tress, while Crazy Rich Asians was best com­edy, A Quiet Place was best hor­ror and The Favourite won best ensem­ble.
