The spectacularly deserving Jason Momoa was reported as the 2019 GQ Man of the Year, in association with Coach, at the Men of the Year Awards, presented by Audi.
In only a couple of years, Momoa’s star power has exemplified a large portion of Hollywood as the actor has handled some of the most popular roles, incorporating Drogo in Game of Thrones and Aquaman in the superhuman flick that propelled a new generation of fans.
In any case, while Momoa – with all his alluring appeal and great looks – could simple lay on these accreditations alone, the on-screen character keeps on fretting about the condition of the world and the problems that need to be addressed that worry the greater part. This isn’t somebody living in the shiny bubble of Hollywood, this is somebody rousing change and utilizing his foundation for good.
Such was the situation this year, when Momoa talked at the United Nations General Assembly to reiterate the Small Island Developing States Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway. Talking in the interest of little island countries, Momoa encouraged those in participation to make a move against environmental change and a worldwide temperature alteration and passionate speech soon went viral.
Thinking about the entirety of this, Momoa is really a well-deserving Man of the Year. He keeps on buckling down in his calling, yet as a dad and a resident of this world and his craving to utilize social media for good is something we would all be able to get behind.
Presenting the award, Mojean Aria said: “Four 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.”
Accepting the award, Momoa said: “Never in a million years did I think I would be the 2019 GQ International Man of the Year, it’s a true honour. Unfortunately, I’ve only got a month left to enjoy my crown. But I’m really stoked that I got to beat all the Hemsworth’s because…you know…I finally deserve this.”
The actor added, “Also, Australia, you know I love you. I hope I get to come down there for Aquaman 2 and thank you very much for this. Yeah, mate!”
