Doctor Strange 2 found itself sitting atop the 1st place in the People’s Choice Awards for being “The Movie of 2022”. Although this is a huge win for director Sam Raimi and actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, people stated that it was all because of Elizabeth Olsen. The people took to Twitter to proclaim this as “The Elizabeth Olsen Effect” while others tried to defend all the other cast of the movie.

People also defended the star cast of the movie while a majority of them did not support the decision at all. Stating names like The Batman, the people felt that the award system was rigged and it was all because of the audience’s obsession with Elizabeth Olsen.
