BBC News published this video item, entitled “The Crown star Emma Corrin calls for gender neutral awards – BBC News” – below is their description.
Emma Corrin, best known for playing Princess Diana in Netflix’s The Crown, has called for the best female and best male categories at major film awards to be merged into a single, gender-free one.
“I don’t think the categories are inclusive enough at the moment,” said the 26-year-old, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.
“When it comes to categories, do we need to make it specific as to whether you’re being nominated for a female role or a male role?” they said.
Only a few film awards have eliminated gender-specific acting categories, however the Baftas and Oscars have both indicated they are in discussions about making a single category.BBC News YouTube Channel
