The much-discussed movie has proven to be a hit with fans following its release late last year
'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' was the big winner at the MTV Movie Awards in Burbank, California last night (09.04.16).
The JJ Abrams-directed effort was named Movie of the Year at the star-studded event, while one of the much-hyped film's central performers, Daisy Ridley, took home the Breakthrough Performance gong.
What's more, Adam Driver was named the best villain for his own starring role in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', which was released to critical and commercial acclaim in late 2015.
Elsewhere, the event - which was hosted by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kevin Hart - also recognised the efforts of 'Deadpool' and 'Pitch Perfect 2', which each claimed two awards.
Meanwhile, 'Straight Outta Compton' won the coveted Best True Story prize.
