he 2018 MTV Film & TV Awards celebrated the best in cinema and television is available on Monday, but some special attention was given to one of the most talked-about shows — that’s not even on TV anymore!

Various celebs shots at Roseanne Barr during the awards show — which was recorded on Saturday — after the family sitcom of the cancellation by ABC last month after Barr tweeted a racist remark about Barack Obama’s former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Michael B. Jordan went home with the award for Best Villain, for his role as Erik Killmonger in “the Black Panther”, but thought that it might be Barr earned the honor more than he did.

“I’m shocked that I won this award for Best Villain,” Jordan joked. “I thought that Roseanne had that in the bag.”

And Olivia Munn and Zazie Beetz also took a shot during the presentation of the Best Hero Jordan’sBlack Panther” counterpart, Chadwick Boseman.

“We also want to a shout-out to our real heroes,” Munn said before Boseman won the award for his role as the titular Black Panther, King T Challa of Generates. The couple called teachers, activists, fire-fighters and emergency workers as some examples of real-life heroes, adding — in an unaired moment — “and that man who fired Roseanne. That was fun.”

For his part, Boseman did choose to honor a true hero with his ruling, giving the cup James Shaw, Jr., who was praised for saving their lives when he disarmed a gunman at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee, in April.

Barr has tweeted constantly about the controversy since the show’s cancellation in late May. She recently took to Twitter to announce that they are “the making of a refund for the pain that I have caused”, as rumors swirled about a possible “Roseanne” reboot or spin-off without her character.

A source with knowledge of the situation told ET earlier this month that ABC and “Roseanne” show producers are deep in discussions for a possible restart. According to the source, the network and show executives are in continuing discussions as they work to try and create a spin-off for the show without the leading lady.

Several ideas have been discussed, behind closed doors, according to the source, and “it is more than likely the entire cast (minus Barr) and the crew would return” as a contract concluded with a restart can be made. The source says that it is unclear when an announcement will be made, but says that the behind-the-scenes calls, “move fast.”
