In her acceptance speech, Emma said that while the award may mean a lot of things to different people for her it is something about what it means to act.

Emma won the first acting award not separated by gender for her performance as Belle in Beauty And The Beast.

"But to me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes and that doesn't need to be separated into two different categories".

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.

Another English actress, Millie Bobby Brown, 13, won the best actor in a TV show award for the sci-fi show "Stranger Things".

Beauty and the Beast was the Movie of the Year, with its star, Emma Watson, the Best Actor in a Movie.

Operations were canceled, emergency room services were scaled down, and medical personnel went back to using handwritten notes. Portugal Telecom was hit on Friday by a cyber attack but no services were impacted, a spokeswoman for the company said.

The comments from the British actress won praise from many on social media, but drew a rebuke from Piers Morgan, the former CNN talk show host who now hosts "Good Morning Britain" on ITV. There were also some new categories like Trending, Best American Story, and Next Generation.

Then, pretending to turn on the waterworks, she said, "I shouldn't get emotional again because I, like, broke down in my speech".

It's excellent to see that award go to someone who understands the importance of such a move.

"This award is bigger than Jharrel and I", Sanders said. This is very meaningful for me, both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia.

Movies "Hidden Figures", the "Fast and Furious" franchise and Trevor Noah of "The Daily Show" were also winners on the night. "I love playing someone who didn't listen to any of that", Watson said onstage as she accepted the award. The movie nominees included Watson for Beauty and the Beast, Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya, Hailee Steinfeld, Taraji P. Henson, Hugh Jackman, and James McAvoy.
