Simu Liu Wins People’s Choice Award for Action Movie Star of the Year

Simu Liu won the People’s Choice Award for best action movie star of the year for his work as the titular character in “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” on Tuesday night.

“Shang-Chi” also took up the award for best action film of the year.

Twitter exploded with admiration for Marvel’s newest star — as well as enthusiasm over the fact that he was seated next to “Loki” actor Tom Hiddleston, who also won male TV star of the year.

“Shang-Chi,” which debuted in early September, is the year’s highest-earning picture in the United States, with $224.5 million. It was also the first Marvel picture with a primarily Asian cast and an Asian superhero at the forefront.
