The people have spoken, and Scarlett Johansson is the Female Movie Star of 2018!

The actress was a triple winner last night at E!'s People's Choice Awards Sunday, as Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War also won the awards for Action Movie of 2018 and Movie of 2018; Johansson has been playing Natasha Romanoff—a.k.a. Black Widow—since Iron Man 2. E! News' Jason Kennedy caught up with her backstage, where he toasted her by popping a bottle of bubbly. "That was loud!" Johansson told him, teasing, "You could have taken my eye out!"

Johansson, who reunited with her Avengers: Infinity War co-stars Danai Gurira and Pom Klementieff, said she was "so nervous" when she appeared onstage. "It's very, very touching and sweet," she shared. "Like I said, I've never won anything like this before. It's very special."

It was a big night for Marvel Studios, as Gurira was named the Action Movie Star of 2018; Chadwick Boseman, her co-star in Black Panther, was named the Male Movie Star of 2018.

For Johansson, simply being nominated for a People's Choice Award was more than enough. "When I was a little girl I always dreamed that I'd be able to perform in front of an audience, whether that was onstage or onscreen," the A-list star told E! News. "Just to be able to have that become a reality is incredibly special. I'm very, very happy. I feel very thankful to be here."
