MTV Awards 2019: Avengers: Endgame, Others Win Big

Avengers: Endgame won big at the MTV Movie & TV Awards which held on Monday night at cavernous hangar at Santa Monica Airport in southern California.

Marvel’s record-breaking blockbuster “Endgame,” picked up the best movie award, as well as the best hero for Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man and best villain for Josh Brolin as Thanos.

Endgame, which was released in April, has been a huge commercial success and is second only to Avatar in the list of highest-grossing films ever.

Anthony Russo, who directed the film with his brother, Joe, accepted the prize for best film after seeing off competition from BlacKkKlansman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Us.

Oscar-winner Larsen added to the superheroes’ haul by picking up the best fight award, praising her stunt workers as the “living embodiment of Captain Marvel” as she brought them up on stage.

Lady Gaga won best performance in a movie for her role in A Star Is Born, while Elisabeth Moss won the TV equivalent for The Handmaid’s Tale.

Wide-Ranging awards show also paid tribute to women beyond Hollywood such as trailblazing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,  subject of the documentary “RBG”, who won a new category for the best real-life hero.

The victims of sexual abuse were honoured by the producers of “Surviving R. Kelly,” which won the best documentary.

According to Lifetime network executive, Brie Miranda Bryant “Survivors walked through the fire and then stood again to tell this story,”

The docu-series has led Chicago prosecutors to publicly seek out potential victims of R&B star Kelly, who has pleaded not guilty to felony sex crime charges.

“This isn’t just a trophy to us because this really speaks to the important cultural impact that this generated from this documentary,” Bryant added.

Newcomer Noah Centineo was the night’s biggest individual winner, scooping awards for breakthrough performance and best kiss alongside Lana Condor for Netflix teen romance film “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.”

The TV Awards honouring films and their actors with “golden popcorn” statuettes since 1992.

The nominees are decided by producers and MTV executives, while the winners are chosen by the public, who vote online.
