REUTERS – “Black Panther,” that has taken more than $1.3 billion at the global box-office, won the best movie, best villain for Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger, and best performance and hero for star Chadwick Boseman at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Saturday (June 16).

Boseman, who plays the leader of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, gave his trophy to a man with no Hollywood connections.

“An award for the best hero is amazing but it’s even greater to acknowledge the heroes we have in real life.” – Chadwick Boseman

He brought on stage James Shaw Jr., a 29-year-old electrician who overpowered a gunman who killed four people at a Waffle House outlet in Nashville in April to save the lives of more customers.

“This is gonna live at your house,” Boseman said, handing the trophy to Shaw.
