Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow won the award for Best Hero for her solo debut, a fitting recognition with it being her final performance in the role.
Sophia Di Martino left with the Breakthrough Performance award for her role as Sylvie in Loki. The Disney+ series also received the prize for Best Team for Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Owen Wilson’s Mobius, and Di Martino’s Sylvie.
Spider-Man’s Zendaya was recognized as the Best Performance in a Show for her role in Euphoria, while Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds earned Best Comedic Performance for Free Guy. The MCU was also nominated for Best Fight and Best Show but unfortunately lost out on those prizes to Euphoria, while the Best Kiss award went to Jackass Forever.
Johansson’s Black Widow winning Best Hero marks a beautiful end for her ten-year run in the role, particularly since she managed to beat out such stiff competition. The Russian spy was up against Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight, Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and Daniel Craig’s James Bond, so Marvel Studios was bound to take home the prize no matter what.
