Emma Watson takes her first major ‘Gender-Neutral’ movie award. The ‘MTV Movie and TV Awards’ on sunday night revamped and inaugurated a new category called ‘Gender-Neutral’ . Emma Watson takes the first movie award in gender-less category for her performance as Belle in ‘Beauty And The Beast’ movie. The gender-less best actor category is also added for television.
MTV Awards are the first one to add ‘Gender-Neutral’ or gender-less category to the list. The nominees in this category are not separated based on their genders like the Golden Globes and the Oscars does. In fact, any gender can be a nominee in this category and Emma Watson won her first under gender-less.

Emma Watson received ‘Neutral-Gender’ award from ‘Non-binary’ (somebody who ‘identifies’ as neither male nor female) actor/actress Asia Kate Dillon, from the show Billions. The award was red in color which looked like over-flowing bucket of pop-corn.
Emma said, “The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience”.
She added, “MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” added Watson. “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.”
Emma is receiving criticism from her fans and media for her outspoken issues on gender equality and feminism. Even if she hear the word actress, she quickly comment on it saying,sorry, gender-equal actor.
Emma Watson is been drawing criticisms from public and her fan followers for her close knit association with feminism. The actress also went to the extent of showing her breasts loosely covered for Vanity Fair magazine and received large lashes from the public.
The madness is going beyond and it won’t end with Emma Watson, that’s for sure.
