Black Panther steals the show at MTV Movie Awards

BIG WIN: Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan

BLACK PANTHER dominated at this year's MTV Movie Awards, taking home most film awards, including Best Movie, Best Performance and Best Hero for Chadwick Boseman and Best Villain for Michael B. Jordan.

During Jordan's acceptance speech, the star threw some shade at disgraced TV actress Roseanne Barr, saying he expected her to pick up the 'Best Villain' accolade.

“I’m shocked that I won this award for Best Villain. I thought Roseanne had this in the bag,” he said on stage.

Barr was recently fired from ABC network and the reboot of her show cancelled after a recent racist tweet compared former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape, also linking her to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Fellow co-star Chadwick Boseman who took home the 'Best Hero' award also had a moment on stage, as he gave his award to James Shaw Jr, the man who wrestled an assault-style rifle away from a gunman in a Tennessee Waffle House in April.

"This is going to live at your house," Boseman told Shaw, giving him the show's golden popcorn award.

The actor said while it was an honour to be recognised for playing a superhero, it was more important to "acknowledge the heroes we have in real life."

The MTV Movie Awards was hosted by comedian Tiffany Haddish and aired Monday night (June 18) on Viacom networks. Kaddish also took home an award herself for best comedic performance in Girls Trip.

Other winners on the night included Netflix TV show Stranger Things, which took home four awards, Lena Waithe who was honoured with the Trailblazer Award and Chris Pratt was given the Generation Award.
