Earlier within the night, Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette shared the win for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie.
Close gained for her efficiency in The Wife, Lady Gaga for her work in A Star is Born, Adams for Sharp Objects and Arquette for Escape at Dannemora.
“I was thinking that the world kind of pits us against each other in this profession, and I know from all the women in this category — and I think I can speak for all of the women in this room — we celebrate each other! We’re proud to be in this room together,” Close stated as she collected her prize.
Gaga stated she was thrilled she and Close have been honored collectively since Close is an efficient pal of her mom.
“The true star of the film is not me; it is bravery and it is perseverance,” she stated, referring to the themes on the coronary heart of A Star is Born, which follows the romance between her rising star and the drug addicted, fading music icon Bradley Cooper performs.
Earlier within the night, Adams and Arquette accepted their statuettes.
“I actually can’t think of a more beautiful thing than a tie, because there really isn’t a winner when we get to do such great work and we have such wonderful opportunities,” Adams stated. “I’m overwhelmed.”
Arquette expressed her gratitude to the sequence’ director Ben Stiller and the community that aired the drama.
“Thank you, Showtime, for this,” she stated. “A lot of friends of mine who might be bigger body type said: ‘Thank you. For once in my life, I got to see a bigger boned woman or a different body type woman be sexual, unapologetic and not have it be a fetish or a joke.'”
It’s a tie!! Congratulations to Amy Adams and @PattyArquette who BOTH gained the #criticschoice award for Best Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie Made For Television. #CWCriticsChoice @TheCW pic.twitter.com/ywFvzrSg6g
