Ginsburg wins ‘Best Real-Life Hero’ at MTV Movie & TV Awards


Ruth Bader Ginsburg can add a surprising distinction to her list of honors: She’s the winner of an MTV Movie & TV Award.

The Supreme Court justice won at Monday’s awards show in Santa Monica, Calif., in the Best Real-Life Hero category. The 86-year-old jurist, who was the subject of the 2018 documentary “RBG,” beat out fellow heroic contenders Serena Williams, Alex Honnold, Hannah Gadsby and Roman Reigns in the category.

{mosads}According to MTV viewers, who voted in an online poll for the winner, while Ginsburg is a real-life hero, her fight against inequality doesn’t compare to a cinematic smackdown. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. inequality” in “RBG” was nominated in the Best Fight category, but lost out to Captain Marvel’s battle with villain Minn-Erva in the superhero flick “Captain Marvel.”

Ginsburg lost out in two other categories in which she was nominated: Best Documentary for “RBG” and Most Meme-able Moment.

Ginsburg didn’t attend the awards ceremony.
