The MTV Movie and TV Awards, hosted this year by comic actor Adam DeVine, have been taking a sideways look at Hollywood since 1992, honoring films and their actors with "golden popcorn" statuettes.

South African comedian Trevor Noah was honoured with the "Best Host" award at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Best Actor in a Show prize went to Millie Bobby Brown for her striking performance in Stranger Things.

Piers Morgan has slammed Emma Watson for accepting the non-gender award for "Best Actor" at last night's MTV Movie and TV Awards, sarcastically blasting the Beauty and the Beast star as "a worthy recipient" of the new prize. Netflix's "Stranger Things" won "Show of the Year", and series star Millie Bobby Brown won for "Best Actor in a Show".

Syrian Opposition Group Slams Russian Proposed De-Escalation Deal
A partial cessation of hostilities was declared at the end of previous year , but violence has continued on several fronts. The Russian Defence Ministry announced on Friday that four de-escalation zones in Syria will go into effect at midnight.

And the significance of gender non-binary actor Asia Kate Dillon presenting the award to Watson was not lost on the actress: "Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits".

All the Wild Fashion: Any MTV awards show is destined to bring some insane fashion, and the first MTV Movie & TV Awards didn't disappoint.

And turning to another of the night's nominees, Beauty and the Beast, he said, "I call it 'Multidimensional woman with her own dynamic traits, and the beast'".

This year marked the first time awards were given to both films and TV shows. (A non-binary person is someone who doesn't identify with either gender.) Then she presented the award to Watson.

Best Picture Oscar victor Moonlight did not go unrecognised, with the stars of the drama, Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome, dominating the Best Kiss category.

The Fast And The Furious franchise won the Generation Award.

Following the history-making honour, Watson took to social media to offer her thanks. But more seriously, I think I am being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. "Thank you to the audience who embraced this movie so much, but especially to the women because women are proving that they are a huge and powerful audience, and that's going to change the movie business", said Director Bill Condon.
