“Here we go again. Just confirmed that #colinfarrell and #brendongleeson won’t be at #CriticsChoiceAwards tomorrow because they have both tested positive for COVID,” he wrote.
The announcement comes after Jamie Lee Curtis revealed she would also miss out on the ceremony after contracting the virus.
