Doing away with old school notions of a gender binary, MTV's gender-neutral categories allowed for some really exciting new awards to appear on the roster and one exciting break-through to be made in the area of acting awards, like Emma Watson's win for Best Actor In A Movie. A non-binary person is someone who doesn't identify with either gender.

Taking to the stage to pick up the award, she was overcome with emotion and commented, "The first acting award... that doesn't separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience". Accepting the award during Sunday's telecast of the MTV awards, an emotional Brown said she was honored to play "a badass, female, iconic character" on the Netflix show.
