WandaVision Dominates 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards

The late Chadwick Boseman posthumously received Best Performance in a Movie prize for 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'.

WandaVision scooped four prizes (or Golden Popcorns) at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday (May 16).

The Disney+ series — which stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany — won all but one of the prizes it was nominated for in the TV categories, winning Best Show, Best Performance In A Show (Olsen as Wanda Maximoff), Best Villain and Best Fight.

Kathryn Hahn was named Best Villain for her role as "nosy neighbour" Agatha in the Marvel spinoff and her showdown with the titular character.

The late Chadwick Boseman was posthumously honoured with the Best Performance in a Movie prize for his role as Levee Green in Netflix hit Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

Black-ish star Yara Shahidi accepted the award on the Black Panther star's behalf.

She said on stage at the Palladium in Los Angeles: "I'm so honoured to accept this award on behalf of Chadwick Boseman.

"I know I speak for myself, his legion of fans, and the communities he so beautifully represented when I say we are honoured to celebrate his art today and every day."

A number of special awards were handed out, including the Generation Award, which Scarlett Johansson received in honour of her almost three-decade spanning Hollywood career.

She said in her Zoom acceptance speech: "I realise what an absolute gift it is to be able to have the opportunity to do what I love." After the speech, her husband Colin Jost surprised her by pouring green goo over the Black Widow star. Turns out Jost had mistaken the MTV Movie & TV Awards for Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards which is known to slime its winners.

Sacha Baron Cohen was presented with the Comedic Genius by Seth Rogen who hailed him as "fearless".

Elsewhere, Anthony Mackie scooped two awards for Best Hero (Sam Wilson/Falcon) and Best Duo with Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier) in Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

To All the Boys: Always and Forever was crowned Best Movie, Rege-Jean Page won Breakthrough Performance for his role as The Duke in Bridgerton.

The evening's host Leslie Jones was also recognised with the Best Comedic Performance trophy for her portrayal of Mary Junson in Coming 2 America.

You can catch the ceremony on MTV Asia (Singtel TV Ch 350, StarHub Ch 533), Mon (May 17), 8pm.
