MTV Awards go gender-neutral

MTV Awards go gender-neutral

Emma Watson's role in the live-action Disney movie "Beauty and the Beast" made the British actress the victor of the special award.

Picking up her award last night, Watson praised MTV for introducing the new categories.

Best Reality Competition award was won by RuPaul's Drag Race, while the Best Actor in a Show was won by Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown.

The MTV awards broke ground in other ways, awarding Jharrel Jerome and Ashton Sanders the best kiss for the gay coming-of-age story "Moonlight".

Emma also thanked Asia Kate Dillion who played the first non-binary character on TV for presenting her with the award.

All the Wild Fashion: Any MTV awards show is destined to bring some insane fashion, and the first MTV Movie & TV Awards didn't disappoint.

Doing away with old school notions of a gender binary, MTV's gender-neutral categories allowed for some really exciting new awards to appear on the roster and one exciting break-through to be made in the area of acting awards, like Emma Watson's win for Best Actor In A Movie. One of the big moments for MTV (and awards shows across the board) was the first-ever roster of gender-neutral categories.

That's what you like to do as a manager, develop the players. "If we go on holiday we need to know". He improved in several aspects in his play, but I still think he can do better", Koeman said.

Watson ended her speech by thanking every soul who made the achievement possible, as well as her fellow competitors who were nominated for the history-making award.

"This award is bigger than Jharrel and I", Sanders said.

In total, the streaming platform scored eight nominations at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, including four for Stranger Things.

Daniel Kaluuya and Milton "Lil Rel" Howery, the stars of surprise smash hit thriller "Get Out", got the prizes for "next generation" and best comedic performance respectively. "The reason I'm hoping to engage you in a conversation about this is because if the categories of "actor" and "actress" are in fact supposed to represent "best performance by a person who identifies as a woman" and "best performance by a person who identifies as a man" then there is no room for my identity within that award system binary". "Thank you so much", Watson added. "I love playing someone who didn't listen to any of that".

Taking to the MTV stage, Watson appeared humbled and happy to be able to accept the award.

The entire awards show seemed to follow that same theme, according to newsbusters.org, an organization devoted to exposing and combating liberal media bias.
