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

Emma Watson became the first actor to win a gender-neutral award for acting at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, and she acknowledged the historic nature of the award itself in her acceptance speech.

Watson went on to praise MTV for their bold move and relayed that the award indicates that acting is the ability to put oneself in someone else's shoes without being separated according to one's gender.

Asia Kate Dillon defends her character Taylor from Billions, her non-binary gender role made her look at the gender issue more attentively. But inside, it was dry (except for flowing cocktails among audience members) as Adam Devine hosted the proceedings.

As the caption "Adam Gets It" flashed on the screen, Devine declared, "I love Hugh Jackman".

That last award was presented by co-stars of the film smash "Get Out": a very blond Allison Williams in shimmering miniskirt, alongside a nervous-looking Lil Rey Howery. If you want to help spur change in an industry, that's just one way you can do it, I think. Instead of honoring a physical fight this year, MTV gave its best fight against the system award to the film "Hidden Figures", which highlights the black female mathematicians who worked at NASA when the USA space program was just beginning. Both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia.

Movies "Hidden Figures", the "Fast and Furious" franchise and Trevor Noah of "The Daily Show" were also winners on the night.

". when I saw the breakdown for the character, it said 'female, nonbinary.' And I thought, 'Interesting, I think I know about those words, but let me do research into every aspect of this character and their world and who they are.'
