The movie ended up winning the Cheer-Worthy Moments In Movies award at last night’s Oscars (via Empire Magazine).
We just saw a top countdown of cinema's 5 most cheer-worthy moments, with The Flash entering the speed force from Zack Snyder's Justice League taking the top spot (above Endgame's "Avengers… assemble" and The Matrix's bullet time) #Oscars #Oscar2022 pic.twitter.com/pxfHRgYMOC

It’s a new thing that the Academy is trying.
Basically, the award is decided by users on Twitter and it’s an attempt to increase interest in the ceremony.
So, fans got to vote for this favourite ‘cheer-worthy moment’ in cinema from the last few years.
The movies included in the list weren’t just from 2021, which is actually really interesting.
In the end, Zack Snyder’s Justice League came out on top, and it had to beat some pretty impressive competition.

Here’s how the Top 5 Cheer-Worthy Moments in Movies broke down, according to Twitter…
5. The Matrix (1999) – Neo Dodging the Bullets
4. Dreamgirls (2006) – Effie White Singing “I’m Telling You”
3. Avengers: Endgame (2019) – Avengers Assemble to Fight Thanos
2. Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) – Three Spider-Men Team Up
1. Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) – The Flash Enters Speed Force
It must be said that some people did take to Twitter to mock this award.
I can understand why some people might scoff at the ‘most cheer-worthy moments’ Oscar, but it’s still an Academy Award, technically.
I’m happy for Zack Snyder and I’m happy that his Justice League movie ended up being recognised in some manner on the night.
