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

MTV Movie and Tv Awards

MTV Movie and Tv Awards

Actress Emma Watson claps during the opening performance of the MTV Movie and TV Awards.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards managed to do something completely unprecedented in 2017: they gave out awards that were not separated by gender.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Piers spoke about the apparent "contrast" between Emma's feminism and the time when she "stripped off for a magazine cover": "Gender neutral awards - just what the world was craving".

The MTV TV and Movie Awards isn't actually the first major awards ceremony to introduce gender-neutral categories.

Not only did the MTV Awards remove gender from its award categories, the event also defied gender norms in other ways.

Best actor in a show went to Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things and best duo went to Hugh Jackman and Dafne Keen in Logan.

She said: "I really want to meet Adele". "Firstly, I feel I have to say something about the award itself", she began.

President Trump is also slated to visit the Western Wall which would make him the first sitting U.S. president to visit the holy site.

"I'm so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does", Watson said. Dillon says auditioning the character in her show, "Billions", led to her own "self-discovery".

Anyone could be nominated under the new "Best Actor" categories for television and film. "When you're family, you're family", said actor Vin Diesel, one of the stars of the movie series. Emma said, "This is very meaningful to me, both to be winning this award and to be given it to me by you, Asia".

The first-ever Show of the Year: "Stranger Things".

Host: Trevor Noah, The Daily Show.

The MTV awards took place last night and it was a haven of glitz and glammer. The actress also thanked Matt and Ross Duffer, the brothers who created the show, saying: "They've created a bad-a*s, female character that I've got the honour to play".

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