Jordan picked up the Best Villain prize at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, but he joked that it could have gone to someone more villainous than Black Panther bad guy Erik Killmonger: Roseanne Barr. Her role in the movie sparked a wave of sexist and racist harassment online by fans seemingly aggravated by Star Wars's diversified casting.
Her strong message comes days after she deleted her Twitter account after she became the target of trolls, who flooded the platform with homophobic memes which attributed hateful comments and beliefs about the LGBTQ community to her.
Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish hosted the awards, starting the event with a "Black Panther" skit.
"This being the Generation Award, I'm going to cut to the chase and I'm going to speak to you, the next generation", Pratt said.
"It's even greater to acknowledge the heroes that we have in real life", Boseman said.
She also appeared in a "Black Panther"-related skit with her "Girls Trip" co-stars Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith, which saw Tiffany lament not getting paid for their movie, while the others admitted they had received "dumb money", before dancing to TLC's "Waterfalls".
Boseman gave the hero award to James Shaw Jr., who stopped a shooting in Tennessee in April.
To accept the "Love, Simon" win in the best kiss category, Keiynan Lonsdale - one half of the winning couple alongside Nick Robinson - wore a white skirt and third-eye forehead makeup onstage to deliver a speech inspired by the film's same-sex love story.
The actress said: 'I want you to know how grateful I am to those that support me. "I thought Roseanne had that in the bag". "You can live your dreams and you can be yourself".
Writer, actor, creator and advocate Lena Waithe was honored with a special trailblazer award at the ceremony, and she took the opportunity to pay tribute to LGBTQ trailblazers of the past (it is Pride Month, after all).
