Last night, MTV presented its annual Movie & TV Awards. In it, Black Panther managed to rake in a number of awards, including Best Movie, Best Performance in a Movie, Best Villain and Best Hero. Chadwick Boseman accepted the last accolade playing the role of T’Challa, but it didn’t stop there. Upon receiving the award, Boseman acknowledged the efforts of true-life hero James Shaw Jr., who, back in April, saved many lives by taking away an assault rifle from an active shooter at a Waffle House in Tennessee.

In response to Shaw’s efforts, Boseman expressed “receiving an award for playing a superhero is amazing, but it’s even greater to acknowledge the heroes that we have in real life.” He then handed the golden popcorn to Shaw, who then received a positive applause from all in attendance.

Watch above to see the gracious act by Boseman. Black Panther fans can also check out Tiffany Haddish’s spoof of the blockbuster film.
