Brie Larson continued her award-winning run on Sunday night, taking home a Critics' Choice award for her outstanding performance in the film Room.

Well, she didn't exactly take it home, as she was unable to make the ceremony. But the 26-year-old actress now has another award for the mantle – Best Actress, Critics' Choice Awards 2016.

She beat out heavyweights like Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Saoirse Ronan, and Charlize Theron.

This win comes on the heels of her Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama win at the Golden Globes.

Larson's performance in Room, one of the most talked-about of the year, has earned her a multitude of award nominations.

She's been nominated for Best Actress at the upcoming Academy Awards, Best Actress in a Leading Role at the British Academy Film Awards, and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

“It was the first time I had this much time to create a character, so it to come out and mean so much to others like it does me is incredible,” Larson recently said of Room. “I was homeschooled, and always thought I was weird and different, so to make a film that’s so deeply personal to me and see how it connects to others makes me feel much more understood and much more part of this world.”
