In addition giving an empowering speech about winning the gender-neutral award for best actor in a movie, Emma Watson looked gorgeous at the 2017 MTV Movie Awards. "This is very meaningful to me". "The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience", Watson said, according to E!News.
In accepting the award for her role as Belle in Disney's live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" on Sunday night, Watson said "empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits".
"I think I am being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents".
"Thank you for educating me in such an inclusive, patient and loving way", she said, before walking over to Dillon and embracing the fellow actor.
Morgan then used the MTV award as a jumping off point to question the logical conclusion of society adopting more gender neutral approaches in the future.
He added that "women will now win a lot less awards because they've made them gender neutral and there are more male actors so actually in trying to get equality you end up with more inequality", before adding, "it's a masterpiece". But major movie- and TV-driven award shows like the Golden Globes and Oscars still have gender-specific acting categories. There was a big change to this year's format with the categories removing the actor and actress designations and lumping woman and men in one category.
"Eventually I'll have to smash my head repeatedly into a brick wall", he threatened. Held Sunday night at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium, the 2017 MTV Awards were the first in the show's 26-year history to honor TV as well as film; the entertainment industry still has miles to go in achieving true parity, but this year's MTV Movie & Awards took a definitive stand for inclusion.
