I mean.insane. But carrying on from that, we also won best show of the year.

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. And that doesn't need to be separated into two categories". "MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone".

Netflix's recent run of success at award shows continued on Sunday night at the MTV Movie and TV Awards. "I won Best Actor in a Show".

The award was presented by Asia Kate Dillon, an actor who portrays a gender non-binary character on the TV show Billions.

The MTV Movie and TV Awards took place on Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Los Angeles, California.

The character of Emma (Belle) in "Beauty and the Beast" was considered by the actress as "very meaningful" role, Emma beat other stars (James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman) and won the first MTV gender-neutral prize.

The ceremony also was noteworthy for the way it nominated actors from both TV shows and movies in the same category.

The comments from the British actress won praise from many on social media, but drew a rebuke from Piers Morgan, the former CNN talk show host who now hosts "Good Morning Britain" on ITV.

The best kiss award has previously gone to heterosexual duos like Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in "The Notebook" and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for the Twilight saga.

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

"There is one person I aspire to be every single day", he said, "and that is my mom: a powerful, strong black woman who never listened when people told her she couldn't be more".
