GQ Announced The Most Inspirational People Of The Year, Honoring Jason Momoa As The Man Of The Year

Same as every year, the men’s magazine GQ celebrates the public figures who had the most prominent year. Whether they made headlines for their activism, exceptional musical or acting skills, tackling social issues or becoming fashion icons, the magazine takes all of their deeds into consideration. For the past 21 years, many famous people, both men and women, were celebrated by GQ’s Men of the Year awards.

“The GQ Men of the Year awards presented by Audi champion the men and women who have excelled in their fields, reaching dizzying new heights in everything they do. In their own unique way, they have all used their work and their platforms to raise greater awareness for what they’re passionate about, and together they’re the role models for today and tomorrow,” GQ writes.

Recently, GQ Australia announced its best competitors and people were excited to see that the Man Of The Year award was given to Jason Momoa. Actor, model, parent, and activist, he definitely had a busy year and he’s happy that all of his achievements didn’t go unnoticed. He hopes that the award was given to him not because of his fame or achievements as an actor, but rather for his activism. “Hopefully it’s because I’m busting my ass trying to stop single-use plastics and kicking up dust trying to stop a telescope getting built on our sacred mountain in Hawaii,” the actor wrote on his Instagram account.

However, activism aside, Momoa did achieve greatness as an actor in 2019, too. This year, he starred in Aquaman – DC comic’s highest-grossing film ever at $1.6bln. Presenting the award, Mojean Aria said: “For our next award, few people have had a bigger year than this man. On the acting front, he didn’t just star as Aquaman, as become a living, breathing, real-life Aquaman himself. He’s become a spokesperson for the oceans and for climate change after standing before the United Nations and telling them how it is.”
