South African-born A-lister Charlize Theron finally won an award for her portrayal of Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. She scooped the Best Female Performance at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. 

Many critics felt Theron was snubbed at major awards this year when she failed to recieive a nomination for the performance at the Golden Globe, Oscars and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

During her acceptance speech Theron honoured her two adopted children August and Jackson.
“Tonight I accept this award on behalf of my own little Furiosa: my daughter, August Simone,” she gushed.

“I want to thank my beautiful son Jackson for putting a smile on my face every day,” she added.

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards premieres across Africa on tonight with the red carpet pre-show beginning at 8.30pm and the main show at 8pm on MTV (DStv channel 130).
