Emma Watson praises gender-neutral MTV Award after winning Best Actor

Posted May 15, 2017

Meanwhile, Beauty and the Beast won "Movie of the Year" award at 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Meanwhile, the Best Actor in a Show prize went to Millie Bobby Brown for her striking performance in Stranger Things.

The film's lead star Emma Watson won the new combined-gender Best Actor award in a Movie.

The award came about after the cable network made a decision to eliminate gender classifications for its Movie & TV Awards, which were handed out Sunday night in Los Angeles.

MTV abolished gender-specific categories for its acting awards this year, giving the honor for best actor in a movie to Emma Watson for "Beauty and the Beast". The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees by their sex says something about the way we perceive the human experience.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards managed to do something completely unprecedented in 2017: they gave out awards that were not separated by gender. I think I'm being given this award for a performance as an actor, but it doesn't feel like that what it's really for, although I am very grateful if you did think that I did a good job because the whole singing part of the situation was pretty terrifying - yeah, not kidding about that part!

"This award is bigger than Jharrel and I. This represents more than a kiss", Sanders added.

I had also said that his selection would have helped clear the doubts that the party works for a particular community", he said. Comedian-turned-politician Waraich told the media here that he has resigned from the primary membership of the AAP .

She concluded her speech by thanking her fans and well-wishers.

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash Get Out: a blond Allison Williams, in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rey Howery.

Meanwhile "Hidden Figures", which tells the previously little-known story of the vital contribution of African American women to the NASA space program, won a new "Fight Against The System" category.

Beauty and The Beast was released on March 17, 2017, and has racked up a global earning of USD$1.2bil (RM5.1bil) thus far.

The eighth "Fast and Furious" movie co-stars Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster took the stage to accept the award.
