Olivia Colman and Christian Bale win again at Critics' Choice Awards

Olivia Colman and Christian Bale win again at Critics' Choice Awards

It comes a week after success for both stars at the Golden Globes and in the BAFTA nominations.

Critics' Choice Awards are bestowed annually by the Broadcast Film Critics Association [BFCA] and Broadcast Television Journalists Association [BTJA] to honor the finest in cinematic and television achievement.

Lady Gaga and Glenn Close have tied for best actress at today's Critics' Choice Awards.

A bearded Bale then went on to hail the movie, helmed by Adam McKay, as a "tragedy" rather than a comedy.

In her acceptance speech for best actress, Gaga tearfully thanked her co-star and director Bradley Cooper, calling him a "magical filmmaker".

Mahershala Ali ("Green Book") walked away with a Best Supporting Actor win, while Regina King ("If Beale Street Could Talk") won for Best Supporting Actress.

First Man star Foy was another British victor, and gave a powerful speech while accepting the #SeeHer award in recognition of her contribution to women in film.

Offbeat 18th century royal romp "The Favourite" won the award for Best Acting Ensemble, while its star Olivia Colman won the Best Actress in a Comedy award.

Roma also had a great night at the Golden Globes, winning two out of the three awards it was up for.

Gaga, who also took home the award for best song at the the ceremony, posted on social media that while she felt "honoured and blessed" and that her "heart is exploding with pride" at the gongs, she was rushing to Arabella "to say goodbye".

"Crazy Rich Asians" won in the Best Comedy category, beating out "The Favourite" and "The Death of Stalin", among others.
