Chadwick Boseman honours real-life hero from Waffle House shooting

Black Panther and Stranger Things dominated the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards with widespread Wakanda pride and '80s nostalgia as Black Panther won the most film awards and Stranger Things took home the most prizes in television.

Black Panther took home four awards, including Best Movie, and actor Chadwick Boseman earned two trophies for Best Hero and Best Movie Performance.

Boseman even gave his Best Hero award to real-life hero James Shaw Jr., who fought off a gunman at the Tennessee Waffle House shooting earlier this year.

Actor Michael B. Jordan also took home a golden popcorn bucket after being honoured as Best Villain in the film.

Stranger Things won three awards including Best Show, and actress Millie Bobby Brown and actor Noah Schnapp took home trophies as well.

Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish hosted The MTV Movie & TV Awards, which aired Monday night on MTV, but were recorded in Santa Monica on Saturday night.

Although she was presenting the show, Haddish won the award for Best Comedic Performance for her role in Girls Trip.

The highest honours of the night were given to actress and writer Lena Waithe (The Trailblazer Award) and actor Chris Pratt (The Generation Award).
