Los Angeles: Hollywood star Emma Watson was today chosen for the first-ever Genderless Acting Award for the Best Actor category at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.
According to the media reports, Emma made history at the annual event held at the Shrine Auditorium after clinching the award.
She said: “I feel I have to say something about the award itself. The first acting award in history 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.”
