Emma Watson Makes History While Accepting First-Ever Genderless Acting Award

posted by Courtney Simon -

Emma Watson made history this weekend by accepting the award for Best Actor in a Movie at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards! This is the first-ever genderless acting award! 

"I feel I have to say something about the award itself," she began. "The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes. And that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories."
