Game of Thrones and Avengers win big at MTV Awards

Oh happy day, Lizzo channels 'Sister Act 2' performing at MTV Awards

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Superhero blockbuster "Avengers: Endgame" was the top victor at the MTV Movie and TV awards on Monday in a show marked by messages of empowerment and self-esteem.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg won the best real-life hero award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which aired Monday night.

Superhero blockbuster "Avengers: Endgame" was the ultimate victor at the ceremony, winning three awards, including best movie, best villain and best hero.

"Surviving R. Kelly", in which seven women spoke on camera about what they said was years of sexual and emotional abuse by the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer, won best documentary. However, Dwayne Johnson receiving the "Generations Award" came as a consolation prize for the company.

Women took home several of the night's biggest awards, including Elisabeth Moss, for best performance in a show for The Handmaid's Tale. As she joined the red carpet, she was asked about facing off against the legendary Supreme Court Justice for an award. Then there was the Best Fight, which went to the Captain Marvel for the fisticuffs between the titular character and Minn-Erva (It should've gone to Captain America's fight with Thanos and you know that to be true!).

"If I'm shinin', everybody gonna shine (yeah, I'm goals)", the Houston native sings as she twerks and glides across the stage.

The weirdest victor was Game of Thrones for Best Show.

Johnson gives us a look into when he first gets to Hollywood and how he was urged to change. However, since we are talking about the final season here, the award is very questionable.

The professional wrestler-turned-actor scored his first leading role in 2002 action movie The Scorpion King and has since become one of the best paid stars in the film industry.

Sandra Bullock touched the audience during her speech for most frightened performance for Bird Box. However, you can find MTV and other Viacom networks on SlingTV, DirecTV Now, FuboTV, and Philo TV. You can see the full list of winners here.
