Marvel's Heroes Have An Astonishing Number Of Acting Awards Between Them

I’m fairly certain that most people who think about such things have said in the last 10 years, “Eventually the list of actors that haven’t been in a Marvel movie will be shorter than the list of those that have.” Then, today, I said to myself, “Kayleigh mentioned several awards in her post about how the actors are doing since their breakout roles in Marvel films. I wonder how many acting awards the MCU has total, but measured only in Oscars and Golden Globes since I have a life to live.”

So, let’s do this. MARVEL MOVIES ONLY. I’m including the actors and actresses in movies that have to pretend mutants don’t exist. And only awards for ACTING. Not directing (Robert Redford) or original screenplay (Matt Damon) or being in a movie (Michael Douglas). And if I miss one, I’m happy for you to tell me nicely.
