Hollywood’s award season festivities continued Sunday with the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Lady Gaga won the first award of the night for best song for her collaboration “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.”

She went on to tie for best actress in a motion picture with Glenn Close, who won for “The Wife.”

That wasn’t the only category with a double win. Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette tied for best actress in a movie made for TV or limited series and they gave a joint impromptu speech.

The historical comedy-drama “The Favourite,” starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, took the lead with 14 nominations and took home the award for best acting ensemble.

Mahershala Ali and Regina King, who each won Golden Globe awards one week ago, were acknowledged again for their respective performances in “Green Book” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

It was a big night for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.” Darren Criss won the best actor in a movie made for TV or limited series for his role as Andrew Cunanan and the show took home the award for best limited series.

The big prize of the night went to the Netflix drama “Roma” for best picture.
