The MTV Movie & TV Awards 2017 created history yesterday by presenting gender-neutral awards. And the very first Best Actor Award was received by Emma Watson for playing Belle in Beauty and the Beast.
The moment was especially meaningful as Emma was presented the award by Asia Kate Dillon, who plays Taylor on Billions—TV’s first ever gender non-binary character.
In her acceptance speech, Emma said, “Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits. This is very meaningful for me both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia. Thank you for educating me in such an inclusive, patient and loving way.”
