Chastain also revealed her reasons for wearing the mask during a red carpet interview, saying it was because she was set to star in Broadway play A Doll's House: “I’m really excited about that. I’m a little nervous about getting sick but I got my mask … you have to be so careful in the theatre because I don’t want to let my cast down."

As a result of Farrell, Gleeson and Curtis catching Covid, they were forced to miss the Critics Choice Awards at the weekend. All three were nominated for awards.

Regarding catching Covid, Curtis said: “F*** Covid! Sadly, this head cheerleader is not going to be at all the weekend festivities cheering on her friends and colleagues. Life on life’s terms. I’m glad that there are all these home tests available so that I didn’t go to the [American Film Institute] lunch and spread my germs. Stay safe out there people.”

Michelle Pfeiffer also missed the ceremony due to the virus and was originally supposed to present Jeff Bridges with his lifetime achievement award.
