Gurira beat out Avengers: Infinity War's Chris Hemsworth, Jurassic World star Chris Pratt, Deadpool 2's Ryan Reynolds, and her Black Panther co-star, Chadwick Boseman, for the honor. "Thank you for affirming that women and girls, when they are given the chance to hang with the boys, can hang with the best of them," Gurira stated after she accepted her award. "Thank you."
"I have to give love and appreciation to Mr. Ryan Coogler, the storyteller behind this," she said, "and for giving me this role and entrusting women to be collaborators, to be front and center and to have space and tell a story with him. Thank you very much, Mr. Coogler."
