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.”
