Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Michelle Pfeiffer will miss Critics Choice Awards after testing positive for COVID-19 – Yahoo Entertainment

COVID-19 is clearing out the Critics' Choice Awards.
Jamie Lee Curtis, 64, who is nominated for her supporting role in Everything Everywhere All at Once, was the first to announce that she would miss Sunday night's award show after testing positive for COVID-19 following her attendance at the Golden Globes on Tuesday.
That star-studded affair also drew Colin Farrell — a winner for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy — and his Banshees of Inisherin co-star and supporting actor nominee Brendan Gleeson. On Saturday The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that both Farrell, 46, and Gleeson, 67, have also come down with COVID-19 and will not attend the Critics' Choice Awards as planned.
Michelle Pfeiffer, 64, will also be a no-show, the actress told fans on Sunday. In an Instagram post, Pfeiffer shared that her own COVID-19 diagnosis meant she wouldn't be on hand to celebrate Jeff Bridges — her co-star in The Fabulous Baker Boys — getting the Lifetime Achievement Award at the show, which will be hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler.
"I’m so sorry to be missing the Critics Choice Awards today. Yep, COVID," the "disappointed" star wrote, going on to pay tribute to Bridges.
While the Golden Globes had its own share of absences — including winners Cate Blanchett, Amanda Seyfried and a flood-stranded Kevin Costner — the confluence of rising COVID-19 cases and a cluster of mostly unmasked Hollywood gatherings doesn't bode well for awards season. Someone check on Jennifer Coolidge — last seen being escorted to the Golden Globes stage by Farrell.
The 2023 Critics Choice Awards is short a few A-listers this year. Nominees Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Jamie Lee Curtis and presenter Michelle Pfeiffer were all forced to bow out of Sunday’s show after testing positive for Covid-19. Farrell and Gleeson, up for their roles in awards season frontrunner “The Banshees of Inisherin,” confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that they would have to miss the event, while “Everything Everywhere All At Once” star Curtis previously announced her condition on Instagram.
Two awards shows with only a few days separating them? Welcome to Hollywood in 2023, where your chances of winning a trophy are slightly better than they were in some previous years. But before the trophies are given out, there’s the matter of the red carpet—and just like with the Golden Globes a few days ago, tonight’s Critics Choice Awards was preceded by a thing where a bunch of famous people politely lined up and posed for photos.

It's funny until you realize how vulnerable your money is online.
In its fifth week on the charts, Avatar: The Way Of Water added $31 million to its domestic total, which is now at $562 million, and it’s inching closer and closer to $2 billion worldwide (if it doesn’t hit it this week, it’ll do it next week). Obviously, that’s all way beyond everything else on the box office charts, which makes it not especially exciting to talk about, but that is evidently the curse of the Avatar series—always doomed to make buckets of cash, with nothing much to say afterward
