Emma Watson praises genderless MTV Awards after 'Beauty' win

Now, the 13-year-old Stranger Things star is poking fun at herself for the emotional bit in an adorable video on Instagram. "But I call him Hugh Jack-PERSON". She has been mocked rather cruelly - though why she should pay any attention to anything people say on Twitter is beyond me - for making too much of the award, given the award does appear to be a bucket of popcorn. Beauty and the Beast star Watson praised the award's relevance in her speech, saying "The first acting award in history that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience".

But the awards had another trick up its sleeve, introducing a policy of breaking down gender barriers, as men and women competed jointly in the acting categories.

"I'm AFRAID - that's the word I'm gonna use", Howery said. Best villain went to Jeffrey Dean Morgan for his turn as the bloodthirsty Negan in "The Walking Dead", while best hero was awarded to Taraji P. Henson for "Hidden Figures". 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 US space program was just beginning. Here's to repeating on both awards this time next year.

Vin Diesel, along with his "Fast and the Furious" co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster, accepted the award and paid tribute to their late co-star, Paul Walker.

Oil Resumes Decline as U.S. Crude Production Expands 11th Week
A survey conducted by the news agency found that production from the OPEC members fell for the fourth consecutive month in April. The cartel agreed to cut production in December but the price bounce from the resulting reduction in supply has waned.

Trevor Noah of Comedy Central's satirical news programme The Daily Show was named Best Host.

"Lastly, I want to thank the Duffer Brothers, because they've created a badass female iconic character that I've got the honor to play", she told the cheering crowd at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium.

"This movie was bigger than all of us".

"It was important that "actress" was entered into the award system binary when it was", Dillon continued, "because that was the change that needed to happen then, but I think ultimately separate is not equal".
