The most touching moment of the night at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards was given to us by Yara Shahidi.

The 21-year-old Grown-ish actress was at the show to honor the late Chadwick Boseman on Sunday night (May 16) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

Yara presented the award for Best Performance in a Movie, which went to Chadwick for his work in the Netflix film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. She accepted on his behalf.

“I’m so honored to accept this award on behalf of Chadwick Boseman. I know I speak for myself, his legions of fans, and the communities he so beautifully represented when I say we are honored to celebrate his art today and every day. His impact is everlasting and we are eternally grateful for the ways his presence and his art have changed the world. We love you and we miss you,” she said.
