Emma Watson wins the very first gender-neutral acting award

Freda Brock | 10 May, 2017, 14:42

"The first acting award... that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience", she said.

"I think I'm being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents", she explained.

"I will take this moment to go off-script and say Congresswoman Maxine Waters thank you for your work", Ross told the cheering crowd.

For the past 24 years, the MTV Movie Awards has been an evening dedicated to having fun with the film industry-rarely taking itself seriously as an award show.

Watson won best actor in a movie - whether male, female or whatever - for her performance as Belle in Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast".

Beauty and the Beast was the Movie of the Year, with its star, Emma Watson, receiving the Best Actor in a Movie award.

The popular streaming site won three of MTV's "golden popcorn" statues, with an especially strong showing for the Netflix sci-fi series Stranger Things. "What they are good at and not what gender they have", Rubenstein said.

Congratulations to Emma! We're so proud of the work you continue to do and you deserve this win! On Sunday, she presented the award to Taraji P. Henson, alongside Tracee Ellis Ross.

Trevor Noah ("The Daily Show") won Best Host, defeating Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, RuPaul and Samantha Bee, while "RuPaul's Drag Race" was dubbed as the Best Reality Competition.

"I see it as an advancement but at the same time I don't want the women who are constantly overshadowed to not get their prize at the end of the day", Chen said.

He also expressed gratitude to U.S. president Donald Trump "for the comedy".

As for the movie categories, "Beauty and the Beast" was the big victor of the night.

"It was important that "actress" was entered into the award system binary when it was", Dillon continued, "because that was the change that needed to happen then, but I think ultimately separate is not equal".
