Emma Watson Wins MTV’s First Gender Neutral Acting Award

Published

on

Emma Watson has been awarded the very first gender-neutral award for best actor by MTV. MTV has abandoned the norm of having a separate category for both men and women when it comes to acting. Watson received the award for her role in the movie “Beauty and the Beast.”

Among the candidates for the best actor award were Huge Jackman and James McAvoy. Watson expressed her joy by saying that the fact that it was the first year that the fan based movie and TV awards had genderless categories made winning the award more meaningful. She added that it “indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself into someone else’s shoes and that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories”.

Watson also said that in her mind, she was being given the award for who Belle was and what she represented. “The villagers in our fairy tale wanted to make Belle believe the world was smaller than the way that she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her. I love playing someone who didn’t listen to any of that.”

Watson’s career first blossomed after she played as Hermione Granger in the movie “Harry Potter.” She is also known to be an active gender equality advocate and serves as the UN Women Global Goodwill ambassador.

The award was handed to Watson by Asia Kate Dillon who considers herself to be a non-binary person. According to a one report, Dillon called the award “the first acting award ever that celebrates performance free of any gender distinctions.”

Watson was also very thankful that it was Dillon who handed her the award. She said it was “very meaningful to me, both for winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia. Thank you for educating me in such an inclusive, patient and loving way.”

Watson ended her speech by heading over to Dillon and giving her a big hug.
