With all the talk of gender fluidity and ‘no one is born with gender’, this day was bound to happen.
MTV, which has been garbage ever since the Jersey Shore started airing, was the first award ceremony to break the ‘mold’.
They probably feel really proud of themselves for thinking up this award.
Yup, the genderless award is supposed to be a sign of progress and none other than Emma Watson was the recipient.
Emma: The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience.
MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. 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. This is very meaningful to me.
Surprisingly enough Hollywood doesn’t hand out awards for everyone.
There are no participation medals at their ceremonies.
However, with the first ever ‘genderless’ acting award being handed out we probably aren’t that far off.
Should an actor or actress be awarded for their work?
Do we care what gender the recipients of the awards are?
So… why is this a big deal?
By the way, guarantee Emma Watson wouldn’t have won this award if she was going toe-to-toe with some real major actors and actresses.
