Two of Zack Snyder's movies earned the top spot in new fan-voted slots, revealed during Sunday's Oscars broadcast

Army of the Dead

Editor's Update: IMDb has since updated the landing pages for Zack Snyder's Justice League and Army of the Dead. They are now listed as recipients of Oscars Fan Favorite awards — and not actual Oscars. The company also provided the following statement: "Two new recognitions were introduced by the Academy this year. We have now updated our Award summary software to reflect these new, fan-voted recognitions. As you'll see on the IMDb website and apps, the fan-voted #OscarsCheersMoment and #OscarsFanFavorite recognitions are archived on the IMDb 'Awards' subpages for each of the recognized films. They are accurately identified as either 'Oscars Cheers Moment [Winner]' or 'Oscars Fan Favorites [Winner].' We tally these as Awards, but do not identify them as Academy Awards."

Two of Zack Snyder's movies are now being dubbed Oscar winners on IMDb after earning fan-voted honors at this year's ceremony.

Though they aren't actual Academy Awards given out with statuettes and acceptance speeches, the Oscars Fan Favorite and Oscars Cheer Moment were added to this year's broadcast as a way to involve fans and have their voices heard.

The winners were revealed during the broadcast, with Netflix's Army of the Dead claiming Fan Favorite and Zack Snyder's Justice League taking Cheer Moment for a scene involving the Flash. Snyder, 56, directed both movies, which were selected after fans voted on Twitter in the weeks leading up to Sunday's awards show.

On both movies' IMDb pages online, under the awards section is listed 2022 Academy Awards with "Winner" designated.

Some of the actual big winners at the Oscars Sunday were CODA for Best Picture (making AppleTV+ the first streaming service to win that category), and sci-fi epic Dune, which won a total of six awards, the most of the night.

In May, Snyder told Esquire whether he is done with DC movies after debuting his director's cut of Justice League following fan demand for the project.

"Well I mean, they said goodbye to me. And I don't want to... I love those characters. I love that universe," he said at the time. "But you just have to read that Ann Sarnoff article the day after the movie came out, where they pretty much said, 'You got what you wanted everyone. Now quit asking.' So yeah, like I said, not my call. I love those characters. I invested a great deal of my life in those characters. I would never say never to doing another DC movie, but we're talking about the reality."

Army of the Dead already spawned a Netflix prequel film Army of Thieves, with more movies in the works. Snyder teased that a sequel titled Planet of the Dead is happening while discussing the zombie movie with Inverse in October.

"Our original idea for those movies was that we were going to do these little spinoff movies in different markets, different foreign-language films. They were supposed to be all in German. And these little movies were going to all feed into Army of the Dead," he said at the time. "Then, this movie, I don't want to say it got gigantic, but it grew to the scale that it needed to grow to. We just started to do more of it in English."
