Boseman who plays the leader of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, gave his trophy to a man with no Hollywood connections on Monday.
“An award for best hero is amazing but it’s even greater to acknowledge the heroes we have in real life,” said Boseman.

“This is gonna live at your house,” Boseman said, handing the trophy to Shaw.

“Thank you all for investing not just in a beautiful story but for investing in a continued conversation on what this industry and what this culture can achieve,” Duke said.
