After this year’s Golden Globes ceremony, a surge in COVID-19 cases has spread among some of the evening’s attendees. First up was Jamie Lee Curtis, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. The “Halloween” star took to Instagram on Jan. 13, where she wrote, “F**k COVID! Unfortunately, this chief cheerleader won’t be attending the weekend’s celebrations at all to cheer on her friends and co-workers. Life on life’s terms. Curtis also shared that the positive test means she won’t be able to attend the BAFTA tea party or the Critic Choice Awards, although she was nominated for the latter ceremony (via Us Weekly).
Not long after, The Banshees of Inisherin stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson also contracted COVID-19, according to The Hollywood Reporter. At the event, ‘Inisherin’ was the night’s big winner, with Farrell winning Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy, Martin McDonagh winning Best Screenplay and the film itself winning Best Musical or Comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the COVID-19 diagnosis also means none of the actors will appear at the Critics Choice Awards. So what will happen at the upcoming awards shows? Probably not much.
