Superhero movie “Black Panther" did it again at the MTV Movie & TV Awards winning four trophies. "Black Panther", the predominantly black movie that has taken more than $1.3 billion at the global box-office, won best movie, best villain for Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger, and best performance and hero for star Chadwick Boseman.
Boseman, who played the leader of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, gave his trophy to a man with no Hollywood connections.
Boseman said an award for best hero is amazing but it’s even greater to acknowledge the heroes we have in real life. He brought on stage James Shaw Junior, a 29-year-old electrician who overpowered a gunman that killed four people at a Waffle House outlet in Nashville in April to save the lives of more customers. "Black Panther" actor Winston Duke thanked fans for supporting the movie, which has smashed Hollywood doubts about the broader appeal of black films to become the third highest-grossing film of all time in North America.
