A big-screen hero honored a real-life one during MTV’s Movie & TV Awards ceremony Monday night.
Chadwick Boesman, who played T’Challa in Marvel’s “Black Panther,” as well as, in the “Avengers: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War” films, won the award for best hero in a movie, but instead of keeping the spotlight for himself, he invited James Shaw Jr. to the stage to give a real-life hero the award, saying the golden popcorn trophy will live at his house, CNN reported.
