The 44th People’s Choice Awards kicked off at 9pm ET in Santa Monica on Sunday, with Nicki Minaj opening the evening. Rita Ora and John Legend also sang during the ceremony.
This year, 43 awards were to be attributed across the categories of movies, TV, music, and pop culture. Members of the public voted ahead of time for their favourite films, TV shows, musicians, and influencers.
Avengers: Infinity War, which was released in April this year by Marvel, was one of the night’s big winners. The superhero film was named movie of the year and won the Action Movie of 2018 award. It also earned Scarlett Johansson the title of Female Movie Star of 2018 for her role as Black Widow.

Black Panther, another Marvel Studios production, led to two awards. Chadwick Boseman was picked as Male Movie Star of 2018 for his role as T’Challa, while Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye, won the Action Movie Star of 2018 gong.
Susan Kelechi Watson and Aly Raisman took the stage to present action movie star, which went to Danai Gurira, who starred in “Black Panther.”
She said, “Thank you — or as we say in Wakanda, N’cos.” She thanked director Ryan Coogler, Marvel, Disney and the people who voted for her. She said, “Thank you for affirming that women and girls, when they are given the chance to hang with the boys, can hang with the best of them.”
