Emma Watson wins the very first gender-neutral acting award

Emma Watson's award for Best Actor in a Movie at the 2017 MTV Awards marks the first time someone has been awarded a major, non-gender specific acting award.

MTV abolished gender-specific categories for its acting awards this year, giving the honor for best actor in a movie to Emma Watson for "Beauty and the Beast".

"The first acting in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience", said Watson accepting the golden popcorn statue.

After Millie Bobby Brown delivered her emotional speech when accepting an award for Best Actor in a Show, the Netflix series was hailed as Show of the Year.

Despite glowering skies and dime-size hailstones, MTV was heralding the start of the summer viewing season with its shindig. The red carpet outside Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium became a swamp as luminaries made their water-logged arrival for the shindig.

Hosted by Adam DeVine, the show was every bit as entertaining and glamorous as one had imagined it to be. In the press room, dry socks and T-shirts were distributed to sodden members of the media.

At the same time, China's aviation market is growing rapidly as a rising middle class travels more for leisure and business. The plane is seen as competition to Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 passenger jets in the most popular single aisle segment.

Europe is bracing for a laptop ban on flights to America
Now the ban is possible being extended to Europe, although there has been no official word on the matter. Approved medical devices are exempt, but must go through additional screening.

Blue Jays lose pitcher Francisco Liriano to DL
Steve Pearce and Goins each had a single and advanced a base after Barney's sacrifice. "A good hitter is going to hit that pitch". The Mariners tied it 1-1 in the fifth when Ben Gamel punched a double over the head of Pillar to score Jarrod Dyson from third.

The horror hit "Get Out" led all nominees with six bids, including movie of the year.

Laverene Cox, for example, could be pitted against, Matthew Broderick, Jackie Earl Healey, Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz for the award and win, meaning that the judging is fair and just as it's not a small pool of just actors or actresses, but the entire crowd is put into the running.

"I'm so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does", Watson said.

"I'm AFRAID - that's the word I'm gonna use", Howery said.

Trevor Noah ("The Daily Show") won Best Host, defeating Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, RuPaul and Samantha Bee, while "RuPaul's Drag Race" was dubbed as the Best Reality Competition. "We wouldn't be here without you guys, so we might not say it enough, we love you and thank you everyone who voted". Presenting Movie of the Year, Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn comically bobbled the title (à la the Oscars), first announcing La La Light, then Moonland. It was absolutely a well-deserved award for the Beauty and the Beast actor.
