One of the winners at the ceremony took the time to pay tribute to a real-life hero.

Chadwick Boseman was named Best Hero for his role in Black Panther, but presented his award to James Shaw Jr., who successfully fought off a gunman at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee earlier this year.

It was a good night for Black Panther as it was named Best Movie, while Chadwick also scooped the Best Performance in a Movie prize and his co-star Michael B. Jordan was named Best Villian.
