The Marvel Cinematic Universe dominated the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards, with Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel taking home four golden popcorn statuettes.

Avengers: Endgame took home Best Movie, while Robert Downey Jr. and Josh Brolin won Best Hero and Best Villain respectively. Captain Marvel took home Best Fight, for the showdown between Brie Larson’s protagonist and Gemma Chan’s Minn-Erva.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 virtual version of the MTV Movie & TV Awards celebrated ‘The Greatest Of All Time’ in film and television from the 1980’s to the present day in a twist on the awards usual structure.
