2017 People’s Choice Awards Highlights: Deadpool, Iron Man & More

peoples choice awards
Last night, the 41st Annual People’s Choice awards were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and among the big winners of the night were Deadpool for Favorite Action Movie, Robert Downey Jr. for Favorite Action Movie Actor for his role as Iron Man, and Margot Robbie for Favorite Action Movie Actress for her role as Harley Quinn in last year’s Suicide Squad.

Sadly, Reynolds and Robbie could not be there to accept their awards, but Downey Jr. was able to make it and gave a nice speech thanking the fans.

‘This is perfect for me because I love people, I’m crazy about movies and I prefer people who love my movies’

It’s really interesting to see that in the Action Movie Actor category Chris Evans was also nominated. I guess Team Iron Man takes this one home.

Superheroes shows Arrow and The Flash were nominated for Favorite Network Sci-Fi/Fantasy Tv Show, which Supernatural ended up winning, and The Walking Dead took the award for Favorite Cable Sci-Fi/Fantasy Tv Show.

Andrew Lincoln and Emilia Clark were also nominated for favorite actor and actress in a Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series respectively, but ended up losing to the cast of Outlander, which also won Favorite Premium Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series, beating Game of Thrones, Marvel’s Luke Cage, Stranger Things and Westworld.
