Avengers: Endgame in one of the most awesome surprises of the night took out Oscar-favorite 1917 to take home the award for Best Action Film. As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog Disney mounted a campaign for the film with an emphasis on Robert Downey Jr.’s final turn as Tony Stark in the role of Iron-Man.
Other nominees in the category included Ford v. Ferrari, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and another Marvel title Spider-Man: Far From Home. For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this Critics Choice award is well deserved. Endgame was a massive achievement in the superhero genre and concluded an epic run of 22 films! It was also praised by audiences and critics alike earning an impressive 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.
It was also an important day for the Toy Story 4 franchise with the fourth instalment in the beloved franchise earning top honors in the Best Animated Film category. This comes as great news after all Disney animated films were shunned during the Golden Globes last week in one of the major upsets of the night with the film Missing Link taking top prize in the Animation Category. The other films in the Critics Choice Best Animated Film category include Abominable, Frozen 2, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I Lost My Body and Missing Link.

Thie fourth instalment featured a brand new adventure for Buzz, Woody and the gang. Director Josh Cooley said in an interview with Comicbook.com last year, “It’s the completion of his being able to let go of Andy, but there is more to Woody. He’s been such a loyal toy, like so good to the point where he had blinders on, and so this was like, can we show him that everything that he has feared for entire quadrilogy is actually, Bo is that. Bo has become that lost toy that he was freaking out about in the first film and now he’s able to open his eyes and go like, ‘Wow, there is a bigger world out there. I can basically go from taking care of one kid in a bedroom to taking care of multiple kids everywhere.’ So that felt like a big change and a completion of his arc.”
