The 2020 Critics' Choice Awards kept the wins coming in the musical categories on Sunday night (Jan. 12), as the victors have already collected statuettes this season for their incredible contributions to the soundtracks and scores of some of the years' best films.  

The best song race saw not one, but two winners thanks to a tie between "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again," Elton John and Bernie Taupin's collaboration for Rocketman, and the ballad "Glasgow (No Place Like Home)" from Wild Rose. Caitlyn Smith, Mary Steenburgen and Kate York co-wrote the song, which was performed in the film by Jessie Buckley. John and Taupin won Golden Globes for best original song for ("I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" at the 2020 Golden Globes.  

Hildur Guðnadóttir also added to her collection of wins as the score she composed for Joker earned the Critics' Choice honor, as well as a Golden Globe. At the 2019 Emmy Awards, her score for Chernobyl won the top prize.
