Before the huge win, Robert Downey Jr. won the award for Best Hero, which he accepted remotely. You can see him accept that below.

Then, the film won over-all. Russo took the stage to accept it, and Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth video-chatted in to join him.

In his speech, Russo mentioned Lee and the legacy Endgame is leaving.

“A movie like this is only possible because it’s been built on the shoulders of so much great work and so many talented artists and storytellers, stretching back decades and generations now, all the way back to its origins with the late, great Stan Lee,” Russo said. You can watch his full speech below.

 

The MTV Movie and TV Awards kicked off Sunday on MTV at 9 p.m. EST with host Zachary Levi. You can see the full list of winners here.

Earlier in the night, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson won the award for Best Fight at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, and took the time to honor her stunt doubles.

The Marvel film beat out Avengers: Endgame, Game Of Thrones, RBG and WWE Wrestlemania for the big honor.

Larson accepted the award with two women by her side — her stunt doubles in the film.

“I could not have made this film without them. They are truly the basis of who she is,” Larson said, and then left the two to tell their story.
