SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — "Roma" is the top winner at the Critics' Choice Awards, winning best picture, foreign language film and a pair of individual honors for director Alfonso Cuaron.

The 24th annual ceremony held Sunday at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California, also split the top actress award between Glenn Close for "The Wife" and Lady Gaga for "A Star Is Born." The split win comes a week after Close won the Golden Globe Award for best actress in a film drama, an award that many expected Lady Gaga would win.

"The Americans" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" tied for top television winners with three apiece. "Maisel" won the top comedy honor for the second year in a row, and series star Rachel Brosnahan also was a repeat winner for best actress in a comedy series.

"Black Panther" and "Vice" each won three awards, including a pair of acting honors for Christian Bale for his portrayal of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

The best actress prize wasn't the only award that resulted in a tie: Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette split the best actress in a limited series or movie made for television honor.

Elsie Fisher won the best new actress honor for her breakthrough role in "Eighth Grade."

The show was broadcast live on the CW network and hosted by Taye Diggs.
