‘WandaVision’ won four awards at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday (05.16.21).
The Disney + series, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, won all but one of the awards for which it was nominated in the TV categories. She won Best Show, Best Performance on a Show (Olsen as Wanda Maximoff), Best Villain, and Best Fight.
Kathryn Hahn was named the best villain for her role as “nosy neighbor” Agatha in the Marvel spinoff and her showdown with the title character.
The late Chadwick Boseman was posthumously awarded Best Performance in a Film for his role as Levee Green in Netflix hit ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’.
Yara Shahidi accepted the award on behalf of the “Black Panther” star.
On stage at the Palladium in Los Angeles, she said: “It is a great honor to accept this award on behalf of Chadwick Boseman.
“I know I am speaking for myself, his legion of fans and the communities he has represented so beautifully when I say that we are honored to celebrate his art today and every day.”
A number of special awards were given, including the Generation Award, which Scarlett Johansson received in honor of her nearly three decades-long Hollywood career.
In her acceptance speech, she said: “I realize what an absolute gift it is to have the opportunity to do what I love.”
And Sacha Baron Cohen was awarded the Comedic Genius by Seth Rogen, who described him as “fearless”.
Elsewhere, Anthony Mackie won two awards for best hero (Sam Wilson / Falcon) and best duo with Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes / winter soldier) in Disney + ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’.
“To All the Boys: Always and Forever” was voted best film. Rege-Jean Page won the breakthrough for his role as “The Duke” in “Bridgerton”.
The evening’s host, Leslie Jones, was also awarded the Best Comedic Performance trophy for her portrayal of Mary Junson in Coming 2 America.
