Going into last night’s Critic Choice Awards, the lineup for the Best Comedy Special category was a pretty good mix of proven vets and comics on the rise. The nominees included Jerry Seinfeld, Fortune Feimster, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, Michelle Buteau, and Hannah Gadsby.
As it came time to announce the winners, however, there was a tie, which is a rarity for award shows but not unheard of. Both Jerry Seinfeld and Michelle Buteau wound up winning Best Comedy Special. Seinfeld talked about looking forward to when comedy can happen in person again and an ecstatic Buteau ran around and showed off her jogging pants she was wearing for the occasion.
