And it was Miss Universe and the moment that Catriona Gray´s fans awaited for so long that took the lead in the “Best Crowning Moment” category, leaving in second place the very dramatic Miss Grand International´s crowning, when Clara Sosa literally shut down for 2 minutes when she learned that she was the winner! Catriona winning Miss Universe was a dream come true for millions of people in the Philippines, and even in other countries, a great example that dreams should never die. Miss World´s crowning moment came with a twist in 2018: no 2nd runner-up was announced, only the 1st runner-up and then the winner. It takes bronze as the thrid best crowning moment of 2018.

The victory of Puerto Rico in Miss Supranational was 4th, while Venezuela´s triumph moment in Miss International, ranked 5th.
