The people have spoken in favor of Marvel Studios in 2018. Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther combined to win five People’s Choice Awards last night.
Infinity War took home awards for Movie of 2018 and Action Movie of 2018. Scarlett Johansson’s performance in the film earned her the designation of Female Movie Star of 2018.
Chadwick Boseman scored the Male Movie Star of 2018 award for his starring role in Black Panther. Danai Gurira beat Boseman, Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds, and Chris Pratt to be recognized as the Action Movie star of 2018.
“Congratulations to Danai, Scarlett and Chadwick,” said Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo via their Twitter account. “Thank you so much to all of our incredible fans who voted Infinity War as the Movie of 2018 and Action Movie of 2018 in the People’s Choice Awards.”
The People’s Choice Awards are not the most prestigious honors handed out during the awards season. The Spy Who Dumped Me and Fifty Shades Freed were not the best comedy and drama of the year, respectively.
Even so, it’s nice to be the choice of the people and Marvel Studios picked up a handful of victories the studio actually deserved.
