‘SNL’s Weekend Update Takes On Gender-Neutral Categories At Award Shows & Offers An Idea

Reading now: 202

On the night that the Spirit Awards took place in their first ceremony with gender-neutral categories, Saturday Night Live took on the topic on its”Weekend Update” segment. “As this year’s award season gets underway, there’s growing movement to get rid of the gendered categories of Best Actor and Best Actress,” Colin Jost said before delivering the punchline, adding, “And instead call them Best Actor and Best Actor Who Got Paid Less.” Although SNL made light of the category names, the conversation around gender-neutral categories at award shows is real.

Earlier this year, director Sam Mendes said that it’s something that is “inevitable.” “I have total sympathy with it, yeah, and I think it might well be inevitable in the end,” he said in a BBC interview. “I think that’s the way it’s moving and I think that it’s perfectly reasonable.” RELATED: Travis Kelce Recalls Canceled E!

If that film wins an award, I’m more likely to go and see it and that’s what you’re doing there. It’s not about yourself, it’s not about the art or craft of the industry, especially, it’s about selling films.” Emma Corrin, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, is hoping that award shows get rid of gendered categories.
