Box office-busting "Avengers: Endgame" dominated the MTV Movie and TV Awards Monday, as "Captain Marvel" star Brie Larsen led tributes to real-life heroines by ceding the spotlight to her stunt doubles.
"Endgame," the second-highest grossing film of all time, picked up the best movie award, as well as best hero for Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man and best villain for Josh Brolin as Thanos.
Oscar-winner Larsen added to the superheroes' haul by picking up the best fight award, praising her stunt workers as the "living embodiment of Captain Marvel" as she brought them up on stage.
Joanna Bennett and Renae Moneymaker, who also trained Larsen for the first female-led Marvel Studios/Disney superhero film, said it was an "honor" to work on the film and "be a part of bringing such a strong female character to life."
A wide-ranging awards show also paid tribute to women beyond Hollywood such as trailblazing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the subject of documentary "RBG", who won a new category for best real-life hero.
And in the evening's most poignant moment, victims of sexual abuse were honored by the producers of "Surviving R. Kelly," which won best documentary.
"Survivors walked through the fire and then stood again to tell this story," said Lifetime network executive Brie Miranda Bryant.
The docu-series has led Chicago prosecutors to publicly seek out potential victims of R&B star Kelly, who has pleaded not guilty to felony sex crime charges.
Newcomer Noah Centineo was the night's biggest individual winner, scooping awards for breakthrough performance and best kiss alongside Lana Condor for Netflix teen romance film "To All The Boys I've Loved Before."
But it was a disappointing night for "Game of Thrones", which won best show but lost out in three other categories.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards have been taking a sideways look at Hollywood since 1992, honoring films and their actors with "golden popcorn" statuettes.
The nominees are decided by producers and MTV executives, while the winners are chosen by the public, who vote online.
This year it added off-beat new categories for "most meme-able moment" and "reality royalty."
It also gave non-competitive awards to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jada Pinkett Smith.
