Jared Leto's award tour is still going strong.  The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman and "Dallas Buyers Club" star picked up a Critics Choice Award Thursday night, and dedicated the win to everyone living with HIV. 

Leto's turn as an AIDS positive transgender woman in "Dallas Buyers Club" also earned a win at the Golden Globes last weekend.  He took a moment to thank some of the people he forgot last time, including co-star Matthew McConaughey. 

Leto couldn't help but use McConaughey's "alright, alright, alright" catchphrase, but he also thanked the film's leading man for bringing him out of retirement and giving him a chance.  "Dallas Buyers Club" marked Leto's first acting role in six years. 

Leto will have a few more chances to add some additional hardware to his collection this year.  He earned his first Academy Award nomination Thursday morning, and is also in the running for a Screen Actors Guild Award this weekend.  The SAG Awards ceremony is set to air Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Pacific on TNT and TBS.
