Hugh Jackman up for best actor at MTV awards

The biggest names and emerging talent in entertainment will be celebrated at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Men and women will also compete together in the acting categories.

Watson went on to state that though she won the award for acting, she felt like the honor was given to her "because of who Belle is, and what she represents".

Not only was the award an honour for her, she said, but so was receiving it from Asia Kate Dillon.

This year, MTV made all their award categories genderless in an effort to be more inclusive, and Watson was quick to point out the importance of this modification in her speech.

Millie Bobby Brown celebrated her character Eleven in Stranger Things as a "badass female" as she was awarded best actor in a television show.

She thanked family, friends and colleagues on the Netflix show including creators Matt and Ross Duffer.

"She tried on this suit and there was a piece of me that was like 'I don't know, ' but then she started to pose in it and we just fell in love with it".

Formerly known as the MTV Movie Awards, TV shows are newly eligible for Golden Popcorn trophies at this year's ceremony, which will broadcast live Sunday from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

In my humble opinion, I think it's completely fine that Jillian Rose Reed chose to copy the dress.

Jackman is also nominated for Best Duo with Dafne Keen. After her first-ever iHeartRadio Awards performance in March, she headed down to Coachella to perform the future bass track "Chasing Colors" with collaborators Marshmello and Ookay.

"I want to thank every single person who voted for me".
