( CNN) The 2017 MTV Movie& TV Awards were clearly designed to highlight diversity to its implementation of race, gender and sex direction. The Best Kiss award went to the two young black men who starred in the second act of “Moonlight, ” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” won best reality demonstrate. Maxine Waters, Donald Trump’s most outspoken congressional adversary, presented the Best Fighting Against the System award with Tracee Ellis Ross. Acceptance speeches stressed unity and diverse representation in movies and TV.

But the most significant development at this year’s awardings was the debut of genderless behave awardings, supplanting the conventional “best actor” or “best actress” categories. Emma Watson and Millie Bobby Brown took home the two major acting awardings, best actor in a movie and best actor in a TV demonstrate, respectively, for “Beauty and the Beast” and “Stranger Things.”

Are genderless acting awardings the answer to achieving gender parity in Hollywood? Actor Asia Kate Dillon thinks so. Dillon, who identifies as gender non-binary and who uses the gender-neutral pronoun “they, ” presented the award to Watson in a symbolic gesture whose intending was lost on no one. “Binaries, whether it’s ‘man’ or ‘woman, ‘ or ‘black’ and ‘white, ‘ were created to divide us, ” the latter are recently quoted as saying. “So without( them ), there is only ‘us, ‘ which induces us all equal.”
