The January 13 Critics’ Choice Awards presented trophies to a number of stage favorites and alums—including many who have already given multiple acceptance speeches in recent months for their film and TV performances.

Tony Award winner Glenn Close and Lady Gaga tied in the Best Actress category for their work in The Wife and A Star Is Born, respectively. The former took home the Golden Globe for the film a week before.

Continuing their successful journeys through awards season were NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, winning Best Movie Made for Television, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’s Darren Criss, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan; all three had previously earned Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.

Also reprising victories after last week’s Golden Globes were Tony nominee Patricia Clarkson for Sharp Objects and Broadway and West End alum Ben Whishaw for A Very English Scandal.
