    Last night saw the 24th Critics’ Choice awards take place, with the world still talking about Claire Foy’s powerful speech on feminism and the new Fiji water girl going viral.

    The theme of the night however was undoubtedly sisterhood, from Claire Foy and Viola Davis leaving the stage hand-in-hand to Sandra Oh having a public love-in with the Crazy Rich Asians cast.


    But it was the shared wins that really got us pumped up, with Glenn Close and Lady Gaga splitting the Best Actress gong, and Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette sharing the win for Best Actress in a limited series.


    Showing what women supporting women looks like, the actresses excitedly hugged each other and gracefully gave each other their time on stage.

    ‘I’m so thrilled it’s a tie, I can’t tell you!’ Glenn explained of their joint win, with the accolade meaning more due to the fact that Close is actually an old friend of Lady Gaga’s mother.

    ‘Glenn, get over here!’ Lady Gaga shouted, as the 71-year-old stepped back to give Gaga her time on stage.


    Bigging up her joint-winner, Gaga explained: ‘Glenn has a foundation in support of kindness, and this is something that is so very important to me and my mother with the Born This Way Foundation. We want to empower youth to inspire a kinder and braver world.’

    Being the unbeatable double act that is Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, the sweet photos of their joint-win and celebrations later that night have gone viral.

    This is sure to be an iconic moment.

    No, we’re not crying. You’re crying.
