Emma Watson's MTV Movie Award speech was majorly inspiring, duh


Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown won the trophy for Best Actor in a Series at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards Sunday evening.

Accepting the best actor award for her role as Belle in the Beauty And The Beast live action movie, she described the achievement as "very meaningful".

Touted to be one of Hollywood's Wildest Nights, the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards recently broke the internet with its bold step towards breaking gender barriers by having gender neutral nominations categories - a move that was appreciated across the world.

"— Black dudes don't mess with you", said Howery, whose character in the film has good reason to be scared of hers.

Brown is not the first celebrity to show support for the A.C.L.U. on the red carpet. The show beat out fellow nominees "Atlanta", "Game of Thrones", "Insecure", "Pretty Little Liars" and "This Is Us".

Earlier in the night, Millie Bobby Brown scooped the Best Actor in a Show award, beating the likes of Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Gina Rodriguez, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mandy Moore. "A brand, new rivalry, film star Lil Rel, now Eleven's here as well, movies and TV", Devine- dressed as Beast-sang and danced around the Shrine Auditorium stage, which was decorated like a fairytale, palace ballroom.

The actress was joined in her fashion statement by her Stranger Things co-stars, who also donned blue ampersands.

"I think it is safe to say that it is OK for us young performers, especially us minority performers, to step out of the box", Jerome said onstage.

Meanwhile Hidden Figures, which tells the previously little-known story of the vital contribution of African American women to the NASA space program, won a new "Fight Against The System" category.

When The Fast and the Furious premiered in 2001, it was a smaller film that most people considered to be a retelling of the 1991 Keanu Reeves movie, Point Break.

Host: Trevor Noah, "The Daily Show". Channing Tatum and Beyoncé, Lip Sync Battle.
