Wakanda forever! Ryan Coogler's Marvel movie dominated the awards show, hosted by Tiffany Haddish.
Black Panther went into Monday night's MTV MOvie & TV Awards with seven nominations, the most of any other property. Its good fortune followed it to the podium, as it picked up multiple major awards, including Best Movie.
It wasn't the only film or TV series to earn multiple Golden Popcorn trophies. Netflix's Stranger Things won the award for Best Show, beating out Game of Thrones and !3 Reasons Why, among others. Black Panther's win meant it beat out fan favorites like IT and Girls Trip, plus other superhero flicks Avengers: Infinity War and Wonder Woman.
The MTV Movie & TV Awards, which takes the place of the original MTV Movie Awards, is always a fickle awards show in the grander scheme of awards season. It takes place in the summer, finding itself without much of the same buzzed about awards contenders. Its nominees are generally crowd-pleasers and can be films or TV series that have premiered at any time of the year or previous year. In fact, only 2 of the Best Movie nominees were released in 2017, with Avengers: Infinity War coming out only weeks before the awards show.
Notably, the awards show is one of the only major shows to offer performance awards on a gender-neutral basis, meaning male and female actors vy for the same awards.
Girls Trip star, Tiffany Haddish, hosted the awards show.
