MTV VMAs Honor Chadwick Boseman With Flashback To His Powerful 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards Speech


The 2020 MTV VMAs honored the late Chadwick Boseman by flashing back to one of the Marvel star’s most powerful onstage moments. The award show played a clip of the “Black Panther” star accepting the award for Best Hero at the 2018 MTV Movie Awards. “Receiving an award for playing a superhero is amazing, but it's even greater to acknowledge the heroes we have in real life,” he told the crowd, before giving his award to real-life hero James Shaw, Jr., who saved lives by disarming a gunman in Antioch, Tenn., that year.
