The late Chadwick Boseman was honored posthumously at the MTV Awards this weekend.
Boseman was awarded Best Performance in a Movie for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. The honor came three years after he took home the same prize for his role in Marvel's Black Panther.
Earlier this year, fans were outraged when Boseman was snubbed at the Oscars. Boseman was in the running for the Best Actor Academy Award, which ultimately went to Anthony Hopkins.
After the Academy Awards bumped the Best Actor Award to the end of the show in a rare move — when Best Picture is normally the finisher — fans believed it was to honor Boseman. Although it was not the case, Hopkins honored Boseman in his acceptance speech.
"Here I am in my homeland in Wales, and at 83 years of age, I did not expect to get this award; I really didn’t. And I’m very grateful to the Academy, and thank you. And I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who was taken from us far too early," he said.
Since his passing, Boseman has also posthumously won awards from the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, Screen Actors Guild Award and the AACTA International Awards.

The 21 Bridges star died in August at age 43 following a four-year battle with colon cancer, which he kept quiet as he continued to work.
"MTV! 'You got slimed!'" Jost said. "That's Nickelodeon!" Johansson shot back.
Meanwhile, Boseman's role as the Black Panther will not be recast. "His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends iteration of the character in any other medium from Marvel’s past," Marvel president Kevin Feige confirmed during Disney’s Investor Day summit in December.
