Christopher Judge wins Best Performance for God Of War at The Game Awards

Christopher Judge wins Best Performance for God Of War at The Game Awards

The award for 'Best Performance' at the 2022 Game Awards has been handed out to Christopher Judge for his portrayal of Kratos in God of War.

It’s happening everyone, it’s happening. The Game Awards are underway as we speak and the first major award of the night has officially been handed out. Geoff Keighley kicked off tonight’s ceremony by bringing out Al Pacino, of all people, to announce the winner of ‘Best Performance.’ After a brief struggle to read the teleprompter, Al finally got around to announcing the nominees.

In the running this year was Ashly Burch (Horizon Forbidden West), Charlotte McBurney (A Plague Tale: Requiem), Christopher Judge (God of War Ragnarök), Manon Gage (Immortality), and Sunny Suljic (God of War Ragnarök). It’s now been revealed that this year’s winner is none other than … Christopher Judge.

Take a look at God of War Ragnarök’s opening boss fight below.

Christopher Judge, of course, brings Kratos to life in God of War Ragnarök. It’s hardly a surprise that Santa Monica Studios’ latest title has already taken home their first accolade of the night. After all, God of War Ragnarök has received an incredible response from critics and fans alike - quickly becoming the most successful PlayStation first-party launch of all-time.

In our review of Ragnarök, GAMINGbible’s very Ewan highlighted Judge’s incredible performance. He wrote, “The wildly talented Christopher Judge provides the beating heart of this story as Kratos, carrying the narrative forward on his substantial shoulders. Judge can do more with a single exasperated sigh or angry grunt than most actors can do with an entire five-minute monologue, and when he is called on to deliver the big emotional scenes, he doesn’t disappoint. I wouldn’t bet against him when it’s time to hand out the awards this year.” He certainly called that right.

God of War Ragnarök is up for plenty more awards tonight including Game of the Year. Will it take home the title? Stay tuned.
