Winners Announced for the 2018 Cosmo Awards

The winners of the 2018 Cosmique Movie Awards have been announced, and The Favourite seemed to be many voters' favorite, winning Best Film, Best Comedy, Best Actress (Olivia Colman), and Best Supporting Actress (Rachel Weisz).

The Favourite's four awards were the most won by any film this year in a year where voters saw fit to spread out the awards. Bradley Cooper won Best Director for A Star is Born, which also won Best Drama and Best Musical. Rami Malek won Best Actor for Bohemian Rhapsody, which also won Best Soundtrack or Score. Mahershali Ali won Best Supporting Actor for Green Book, which also won Best Historical. Black Panther won three awards (Best Costume/Make-Up, Best Visual Effects, and Best Superhero Film), as did Mary Poppins Returns (Best Fantasy, and Male and Female Cameos for Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury).

After many nominations, A Letter to Three Wives was finally inducted into the Best Films of All Time Hall of Fame. Other inductees were Rita Moreno and James Dean in the Best Actress and Actor Halls of Fame, and Catherine O'Hara and Jack Lemmon for the Best Comedic Actress and Actor Halls of Fame. Lemmon had previously been inducted into the Best Actors Hall of Fame at the 2004 Awards.

Stan Lee was the only person guaranteed a win, as he was naturally postuhmously nominated in all six slots for the Best Stan Lee Cameo Award -- winning, surprisingly, for a film that wasn't from one of his Marvel Comics: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies!

The full list of winners follows, but you can see them in context with their other nominees here:
