If There Was An Academy Award Given For "Best Character Entrance," Which Characters Would've For Sure Won?

In movies, a great character's entrance should tell you absolutely everything you need to know about the character, while also setting up their place in the story โ€” and bein' just a lil' badass while doing it.

So, with this in mind, if there was an Academy Award given for "Best Character Entrance in a Motion Picture*," which characters would've 100% taken home that lil' gold man?

Paramount Pictures

Maybe you'd nominate a classic, like the first time we ever see Indiana Jones on screen in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).

Eh, come to think of it, maybe your vote would go to someone a little more recent, like Killmonger's incredible first scene in Black Panther (2018).
