Black Panther and Stranger Things dominated MTV Movie and TV Awards 2018

It's the year of the superhero flicks and tv shows as Black Panther and Stranger Things dominated the movie and TV respectively at the recently concluded MTV Movie and TV Awards.

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman received the Best Hero award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards and surprised real-life Waffle House shooting hero James Shaw Jr. by paying tribute to him.

Boseman then invited the electrician-turned-hero to the stage from his seat in the audience.

"So, this is gonna live at your house," Boseman said, presenting his award to Shaw Jr.

In April, Shaw Jr. was lauded as a hero after saving lives during a shooting at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee.

He disarmed a gunman, identified by police as Travis Reinking, who opened fire and fatally shot four people with an AR-15 rifle and wounded a number of others.

If it wasn't for Shaw Jr.'s intervention, officials later said that there would have been "greater bloodshed."

In addition to Best Hero, Boseman has also received a nod for Best Performance in a Movie, while Black Panther received nominations for Best Fight, Best On-Screen Team and Best Movie.

Michael B. Jordan, who bested other nominees for the Best Villain for portraying Black Panther's Killmonger joked that Roseanne Barr should have been up there at the podium instead of him, seeing as how her ABC sitcom got abruptly canceled following her racist tweet.

“I’m shocked that I won this award for Best Villain,” Jordan quipped. “I thought for sure Roseanne had that in the bag.”

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

Chris Pratt was  honored with the Generation Award. Pratt stars in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Some of the previous recipients include Will Smith, Sandra Bullock, Mark Wahlberg and Adam Sandler. Lena Waithe will receive the Trailblazer Award.
