Emma Watson Acceptance Speech

People are NOT happy.

Emma Watson won the first gender-neutral prize at the MTV TV and Movie Awards over the weekend. 

The Harry Potter actress picked up the award for her portrayal of Belle in Beauty & The Beast and in her acceptance speech declared it “very meaningful”.

In the first award that groups female and male actors together, she beat male stars James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman to the award. 

Taking to the stage to pick up the award, she was overcome with emotion and commented, “The first acting award… that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone."

"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”.

The MTV TV and Movie Awards isn’t actually the first major awards ceremony to introduce gender-neutral categories. Back in 2011, the Grammy Awards scrapped the male and female categories. 

However, not everyone met Emma’s enthusiasm and some people weren’t impressed.
