WandaVision and To All The Boys: Always and Forever took home top honors at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Best Show and Best Movie, respectively, which aired Sunday night live from the Palladium in Los Angeles. The Falcon And The Winter Soldier star Anthony Mackie and WandaVision‘s Kathryn Hahn also won Best Hero and Best Villain, respectively.
Mackie also picked up the Golden Popcorn trophy in honor of his The Falcon And The Winter Soldier costar Sebastian Stan for their Best Duo win — Stan was off “being a rock star,” playing Mötley Crüe‘s Tommy Lee for a Hulu project, Mackie noted. Before Mackie left the stage, he mysteriously promised of his Disney+ show, “There’s more to come.”
On the topic of heroes and villains, the popcorn for Best Fight went to Hahn and Elizabeth Olsen for the intense WandaVision final battle between Agatha and Wanda. The two took a beat to shout out the special effects team and their stunt doubles, saying their climatic brawl would have been nothing but dramatic hand gestures had it not been for them.
Olsen also collected the award for Best Performance in a Show.
The most moving moment of the night came when Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honored with Best Performance in a Movie for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi accepted the award on his behalf, saying, “We are honored to celebrate his art today and every day. His impact is everlasting and we are eternally grateful for the ways his presence and his art has changed the world. We love you and we miss you.”
Boseman died last August after a silent battle with cancer.
The event was hosted by Supermarket Sweep host Leslie Jones.
Presenters included Mandy Moore, Eric Andre, Tom Hiddleston, Billy Porter, Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, Addison Rae and Henry Golding.
The night’s honorary career awards — The Generation Award and Comedic Genius Award — were given to Scarlett Johansson and Sacha Baron Cohen, respectively.
