Sam Heughan was not at the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday in Santa Monica, California, but he still managed to win an award. His film, “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” won best comedy movie of 2018, and Heughan knows that “Outlander” fans are to thank for the trophy.

“Huge THANK YOU to our Outlander fans, know you voted hard for this,” Heughan wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning.

The People’s Choice Awards are decided by online votes. Fans often start campaigns to try to get their favorite actors or projects to win. While Heughan certainly has some dedicated fans, he was surrounded by a likable cast as well. “Saturday Night Live” favorite Kate McKinnon and “Black Swan” star Mila Kunis played the leading ladies.

Kunis was on hand to accept the statue at the E! award show. “This is actually really cool. Thank you,” she said. “We loved working on the film and are so so happy that you guys responded to it. I also want to say thank you for taking the time to vote.”

Like many of the stars who accepted awards throughout the night, Kunis mentioned the wildfires that are destroying thousands of homes in California. “I have this opportunity, and I just want to say if you could take a minute to donate to the LAFD Foundation, which is our fabulous fire department, it would be really, really great.”

This might be one of the only awards “The Spy Who Dumped Me” receives. The film, which hit theaters in August and is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, received mixed reviews from critics. It made a profit, though. The $40 million production earned over $75 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
