Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS - Kyle Zee­man

IT’S of­fi­cial! Black Pan­ther is still the movie of the peo­ple.

Avengers: In­fin­ity War may be kick­ing butt and tak­ing names at the box of­fice now, but it was Black Pan­ther that ran away with all the love at the MTV Movie & TV Awards nom­i­na­tions this week.

The film‚ which sparked a mini-cul­tural rev­o­lu­tion and smashed box of­fice records, looks like it will have a mas­sive night at the awards‚ with seven nom­i­na­tions

The film got nods in the Best Movie and Best On-Screen Team cat­e­gories‚ while lead ac­tor Chad­wick Bose­man is nom­i­nat- ed for Best Per­for­mance in a Movie and Best Hero.

Leti­tia Wright (Shuri) was nom­i­nated for Scene Stealer cat­e­gory‚ and Black Pan­ther’s Michael B Jor­dan was nom­i­nated for Best Vil­lain.

The lat­est Avengers movie walked away with just three nom­i­na­tions‚ in­clud­ing Best Fight‚ Best Vil­lain (Thanos) and Best Movie.

In case you for­got‚ the MTV awards are the wok­est awards around with gen­der-neu­tral awards and even cat­e­gories like “Best Kiss” and “Best Fight.”

The awards will be held on June 18 at the Barker Hangar in Los An­ge­les and will be hosted by co­me­dian Tif­fany Had­dish.
