Chadwick Boseman Gives His MTV Award for Best Hero to a Real-Life Hero!

Chadwick Boseman just handed over his award for Best Hero to real-life hero James Shaw Jr.!

The 40-year-old Black Panther actor called the shooting survivor up on stage at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which was taped on Saturday (June 16) at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif.

James disarmed a gunman at a shooting at Waffle House back in April.
