Fans of Keanu Reeves showed their frustration on social media after Avengers Endgame racked up awards from two of three nominations from Critics Choice Award.
Avengers Endgame was selected for Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie, Best Horror Movie and Best Visual Effects. It won the award for the best movie of 2020 for its extraordinary visual effects. It beat John Wick 3, Ford v Ferrari, Spider-Man: Far From Home and 1917.
How is Endgame an action movie?
When you had John Wick 3 right there. 🤦♂️ https://t.co/weS6ZxUMQB

Avengers: Endgame winning best Action movie is hilarious when John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum came out the same year.

The decision of best action film award for MCU’s Avengers Endgame annoyed the fans of John Wick, starring Keanu Reeves.
They expressed bewilderment for awarding Avengers Endgame and overlooking John Wick which was a complete action film.
“Avengers: Endgame winning best Action movie is hilarious when John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum came out the same year,” said a Twitter user.
Wait a minute.
John Wick was one of the nominees!? For best action movie!?
And it lost to Endgame, of all movies?!
Clowns clowning everywhere.

Another Twitter user wrote, “How is Endgame an action movie? When you had John Wick 3 right there.”
Others argued that Avengers Endgame hardly qualified as an action movie. Some asserted that Avengers Endgame won the award same year John Wick 3 was released. While the decision of the critics was touted as ‘clownery‘.
Both the movies released last year had earned whopping profit but John Wick had amassed profits more than Avengers Endgame.
WHat? Avengers endgame????
John Wick deserved that award

I love Avengers Endgame with a passion. It was an amazing love letter to the fans. BUT JOHN WICK 3 SHOULD HAVE WON BEST ACTION MOVIE. An assload of cgi shouldn’t make it the best action film 🤷🏻♂️#CriticsChoiceAwards2020
