Wakanda was well represented at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, with “Black Panther” winning the most film trophies, and winning co-stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan making headlines with their acceptance speeches.
Black Panther” earned four awards, including best movie. Boseman took home two trophies — for best hero and best movie performance — while Jordan nabbed best villain.
Boseman quickly handed off his best hero award to James Shaw Jr., 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.
