But the awards had another trick up its sleeve, introducing a policy of breaking down gender barriers, as men and women competed jointly in the acting categories.

CORRECTS PHOTOGRAPHER FROM CHRIS PIZZELLO TO RICHARD SHOTWELL -Emma Watson poses in the press room with the award for best actor in a movie for "Beauty and the Beast" at the MTV Movie and TV Awards at the Shrine.

"I'd like to know if in your eyes "actor" and "actress" denote anatomy or identity and why it is necessary to denote either in the first place?"

"Tom me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes", she said. "And that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories", the 27-year-old actress said during her speech.

"I can't think of a better recipient than Emma Watson, a great flag bearer of all things gender neutral", Morgan said on "Good Morning Britain" Monday.

Netflix also took home a third award last night when director Ava DuVernay's documentary about racial inequality in America, 13th, won for Best Documentary. Other winners included "Moonlight" for Best Kiss and "Hidden Figures" for Fight Against the System.
