Brie Larson Wins Award for Captain Marvel; Brings Stunt Doubles On Stage to Accept It

Brie Larson was a different kind of hero at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The Monday night event awarded Larson, who plays Captain Marvel, with the award for “best fight” with Gemma Chan in the Marvel film.

Larson didn’t accept the honor alone, she brought stunt doubles Renae Moneymaker and Joanna Bennett to the stage with her.

“I wanted to take this moment to really say thank you to the two women that are standing here beside me. These are the women who trained me and were also the stunt doubles for Captain Marvel,” she continued. “I could not have made this film without them. They are really the baseline for who she is. They are the living embodiment of Captain Marvel.”
