Tonight at the MTV Movie Awards, Star Wars: The Force Awakens took home the trophy for Movie of the Year.

The film also won for Best Villain, with Kylo Ren's Adam Driver awarded. Hero Daisy Ridley also won a trophy.

That was enough for the sci-fi sequel to be the biggest movie of the year at the MTV Movie Awards (just like the box office), even though Ridley, Boyega, Lupita Nyong'o and Andy Serkis all failed to secure wins in other categories.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled. The film garnered a record $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.
