Emma Watson wins Best Actor at MTV Awards

After landing her big break in the Harry Potter franchise all those years ago, Emma was always a sweet girl, if a little goofy as teenage girls always seem to be, but she has grown into a attractive, strong and influential young woman who is a good role model for our children.

BBC reported that the 27-year-old "Beauty and the Beast" star triumphed over her competitors such as Taraji P. Henson, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman, and needless to say the starlet was on cloud nine.

It was after Showtime wanted to nominate Asia for an Emmy Award and consequently found the binary categories of "Best Actress" and "Best Actor" too restrictive due to Asia identifying with neither of these genders that the MTV Movie & TV Awards made a decision to create a gender-neutral awards category.

However, not everyone met Emma's enthusiasm and some people weren't impressed.

Emma Watson star of Beauty and the Beast on the red carpet.

However, Piers Morgan mocked Watson's speech. And that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories.

The presenter launched into a rant on Good Morning Britain regarding the award, saying: "Should we ban the word man from life itself? This is very meaningful to me", she further explained.

"So actually by trying to get equality, you end up with more inequality".

"Let me know your thoughts, and if anyone thinks we should, I've got a doctor you can see later".

Beauty and the Beast dominated most of the MTV Movie and TV awards on Sunday night.

After laughing about how hard she found the singing and dancing during filming, she explained how she didn't feel that she had been given the award for her acting, explaining 'I think I'm being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents'.

The British actor got teary-eyed as she thanked Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer for creating "a badass female, iconic character that I've got the honor to play". "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". "This represents more than a kiss".
