The 48th People’s Choice Awards aka the pop culture event of the year was telecasted recently on December 06. Fans voted for their favorite artists and movies and the results were out. While Ryan Reynolds was given the People’s Icon Award, a lot of other celebrities took home their wins.

Amongst them, Elizabeth Olsen was one who was awarded not once, but twice for her work in Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness. She won in the categories of Movie Actress and Action Star. For the former category, she beat out Gal Gadot and Jennifer Lopez amongst others. On the other hand, she emerged victorious over Chris Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, Tom Cruise, and others to win The Action Movie Star award.


Fans were undoubtedly super excited seeing Olsen get the recognition she deserves for her brilliant portrayal of Scarlet Witch. They were so ecstatic that they took to Twitter to congratulate the actress on her win and express their desire for a solo Wanda film.



Will Olsen winning the hearts of the viewers lead to the Marvel executives offering her a solo movie? We sure hope so! Even though Wanda has her own Disney+ show, Wandavision, it would be incredible to see her powers shine in full brightness on the big screens!

Why Fans Love Wanda in Multiverse of Madness

Multiverse of Madness showed a completely different side of the character. The Wanda who once could sacrifice a lot to save the world now waged a war on the same world. She was determined to reunite with the family she created for herself and she didn’t care who she had to cross to get what she wanted. Multiverse of Madness showed that while Scarlet Witch was one of the earth’s protectors, she was also a force who shouldn’t be reckoned with.


Seeing this whole other personality had fans on the edge of their seats, which is what one expects when they go to watch an MCU film. Even though her character was “evil” in the film, it is safe to say that she stole the spotlight, and she did that with just as much ease as she destroyed the Illuminati in the movie with. People loved the villainous personality so much that they were even sort of upset to see her redeemed in the end.

We are excited to see how Olsen tops this!

Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness is available to stream on Disney+.
