The British Emma Watson accepted a historic honor.
For the first time in years, the makers of the MTV Movie & TV Awards did not distinguish between sexes: the main prize was won by Emma Watson.
Every year, when the Oscars have long been awarded, the channel MTV invites to a kind of fun gala.
MTV Movie & TV Awards were given for the 26th time on Sunday evening in Los Angeles. An online audience selected the best of the film business not only in traditional but also in unusual categories: “Best Kiss“, “Best Villain” and “Best fight against the system“.
While in Oscar and Golden Globe statues are given during the reputable film journeys, the award winners are given a red mug with golden popcorn. The event was moderated by the Comedian Adam DeVine at the Shrine Auditorium, where he sang a song from the film “The Beauty and the Beast“. For the first time, awards were also awarded for TV categories this year.
A very special event was the award for Emma Watson. The 27-year-old British won her popcorn cup as “Best Actor“. The special feature: For the first time in the history of this prize, the category was not divided into men and women. Watson received the gender-spanning award for her lead role in “Beauty and the Beast“.
For the first time in a few years, the prizes had no longer been singled out separately for male and female performers. “Best Actor” could be a man or a woman. And Watson, who has been campaigning for gender equality for several years with her “He For She” campaign, was particularly pleased.
