Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, stars of The Banshees of Inisherin, have tested positive for Coronavirus and are likely to miss the Critics’ Choice Awards this evening.
Variety’s Senior Culture & Events Editor Marc Malkin broke the story, writing a tweet about it. He did not, however, mention a specific source.
Colin, 46, has been nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of Pádraic Silleabháin in the new film, while Brendan, 67, is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Colm Doherty.
“Here we go again,” Marc wrote on the social networking platform. #colinfarrell and #brendongleeson will not be attending the #CriticsChoiceAwards tomorrow since they both tested positive for COVID.”
It comes only days after Jamie Lee Curtis was forced to withdraw from the award show due to acquiring Covid-19.
The 64-year-old actress, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Everything Everywhere at Once, took to Instagram on Friday to warn her admirers that she will be skipping the event.
“F*** COVID!” she said next to a picture of three positive Coronavirus tests. Unfortunately, this chief cheerleader will not be there for all of the weekend activities to support her friends and coworkers.
“Life on its own terms.”
Despite her excitement about attending the remaining events on her busy award season schedule, Jamie poured her support behind her friends and other actors.
“I’m happy there are all these home tests accessible so that I didn’t go to the @americanfilminstitute lunch and spread my germs,” she said in her post.
“I’m really proud of these folks, and I look forward to cheering them on through my TV set. “Be careful out there, folks.”
