“Gosh, this is very exciting because it’s the People’s Choice Awards and that’s who we make movies for,” Johansson gushed during her acceptance speech. “Ten-plus years ago when I first started my journey with Marvel, I didn’t know whether or not audiences would like my portrayal of this beloved character. So really owe this all to you guys.” 

Johansson continued, “I also have to mention the badass women that I worked with on this film: our filmmaker Kate Shoreland, our leader, my amazing co-stars Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz and our producer Victoria Alonzo. Thank you guys so much.”
