People’s Choice Awards 2021 – The winners for this year’s awards were announced in a ceremony held last night in Santa Monica, with both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney winning big at the event hosted by actor and comedian Kenan Thompson from Saturday Night Live.

The awards show saw guest presenters such as Cardi B, Laverne Cox, and Tracee Ellis Ross, with famous names and some of the biggest stars in Hollywood in the audience after a record-breaking year in both movies and television.

Black Widow wins movie of the year

Disney and Marvel took home most of the most lauded awards, with Black Widow winning the Movie of the Year award as lead-actress Scarlett Johansson took home the Female Movie Star of the Year award. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings won Action Movie of the Year while lead actor Simu Liu won Action Movie Star of the Year. The Show of the Year went to Loki while Disney also nabbed some big prizes.

Disney won Comedy of the year for Ryan Reynolds‘ Free Guy and Drama Movie of the Year for Emma Stone‘s Cruella. Dwayne Johnson also won both Male Movie Star and Comedy Movie Star of the year.

People’s Choice Awards list of winners

Besides the awards for the movies and TV shows, Halle Berry was also awarded the People’s Icon Award. And former WWE superstar Dwayne Johnson, who had just won the Male Movie Star and Comedy Movie Star of the year, was also honored with the title of The People’s Champion.

Perhaps more heartwarmingly, Dwayne Johnson gifted his People’s Champion award to a Make-A-Wish recipient Shushana, as he shared touching anecdotes in a tribute to the late Muhammad Ali – Johnson then invited Shushana onto the stage to present his award to her and let her give a speech.

Johnson then quoted Muhammad Ali and said: “The service to others is the rent you pay for the room you have here on earth,’ and before he ended the awards ceremony, Johnson dropped another quote he heard when he was a teenager, he said: “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
