Netflix and 'Stranger Things' Dominated the MTV Movie and TV Awards

Film musical Beauty and the Beast and Netflix's sci-fi newcomer Stranger Things were the night's big winners at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, picking up two trophies apiece.

The show about a group of small-town kids dealing with interdimensional monsters, supernatural powers, and bullies took home the MTV award for Show of the Year, while 13-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown won the gender-neutral award for Best Actor in a Show. This decision made the 2017 MTV Music and TV Awards the first major award show to forego gender distinctions such as "best actor" or "best actress". The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees by their sex says something about the way we perceive the human experience.

Asia Kate Dillon defends her character Taylor from Billions, her non-binary gender role made her look at the gender issue more attentively.

A non-binary person is someone who does not identify as being of either gender, preferring the use of personal pronouns them, their and they. MTV's move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone, but for me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself into someone else's shoes. "But I call him Hugh Jack-person".

Next, the Best Kiss Award was given to the only gay kissing couple nominated.

Then, pretending to turn on the waterworks, she said, "I shouldn't get emotional again because I, like, broke down in my speech".

"Thank you for advocating me, in such an inclusive, patient and loving way", she thanked the audience accompanied by thunderous applause. "Thank you so much".

"I'm so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does", Watson said.
