Spider-Man: No Way Home dominated the MTV awards last night, but it didn’t manage to win everything.

The popular awards show, the MTV Movie & TV Awards, returned this year, and superhero media dominated the categories.

Since Marvel‘s Spider-Man: No Way Home has become the sixth biggest film of all time at the box office, it was only natural that it was going to do well at the awards.

But there was some competition in the form of Matt Reeves’ The Batman, and some results during the event managed to come as quite a surprise.
