Chadwick Boseman has been honoured at 2020 MTV Movie and TV Awards: Greatest of All Time with the Hero for the Ages Award.
Don Cheadle and Robert Downey Jr, his co-stars in the Marvel Avengers Universe, spoke of his unique talent and ability to connect with people before a highlight reel of Boseman’s achievements was shown.
Downey Jr said the recently departed star of Black Panther “was the most heroic when just being Chad”.
Other awards were given to “Dynamic Duo” Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler for their numerous film collaborations, while Gal Gadot accepted the first She-ro award as her film Wonder Woman 1984 is poised for a double cinema and streaming release on Christmas Day.
Kevin Hart was given the Comedy Giant Award, and Jamie Lee Curtis shared her Scream Queen Award with her “friend” Michael Myers – her nemesis from the Halloween franchise.
Other winners included Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kevin Bacon, Kristen Bell and Jason Segel.
Sia, Travis Barker and Steve Aoki performed at the virtual show, which was presented by Vanessa Hudgens.
