Piers Morgan blasts Emma Watson over gender-neutral MTV Awards

Freda Brock | 13 May, 2017, 20:34

Hindus have described; the American reality TV personality Farrah Abraham's appearance at "2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards" in Los Angeles on May seven wearing bindi on forehead and then reportedly boasting that she felt "freaking fantastic...and sexy!"; as "inappropriate" and asked for an apology.

"MTV is once again a pioneer in reflecting who young people are today", said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO.

Emma Watson has said being awarded with the first prize for an actor that does not regard their gender is "very meaningful".

The best kiss award has previously gone to heterosexual duos like Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in "The Notebook" and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for the Twilight saga.

"Thank you Donald Trump for the comedy", he teased. So, movie stars were not the only ones who received golden popcorn trophies on Sunday night.

The awards show also added a genderless best actor category for television, which was won by 13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown for her popular character Eleven in Stranger Things.

The agency said a veteran CIA operations officer was chosen to head the mission center as its assistant director. The center will work closely with the entire USA national security community, it added.

Another change was the MTV Generation Award which went to the entire "Fast and Furious" cast.

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. In the ceremony's other gender-neutral acting categories, "The Walking Dead" star Jeffrey Dean won for best villain ahead of Allison Williams in "Get Out" and Jared Leto in "Suicide Squad". "When you're family, you're family", said actor Vin Diesel, one of the stars of the movie series.

Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's The Daily Show was named Best Host.

Adam Devine hosted the proceedings and, tongue-in-cheek, described himself as a progressive personality before declaring, "I love Hugh Jackman".

Presenting Movie of the Year, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn comically bobbled it (a la the Oscars), announcing La La Light, then Moonland.

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