Emma Corrin thinks that the Oscars and other award events should be more inclusive by not breaking up honors into male and female categories. Emma Corrin identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns. Singer Adele previously maintained the conventional gender roles and expressed her pride in being a woman.

The 26-year-old Emma, who has already received a Golden Globe and an Emmy nomination for her depiction of Princess Diana, expressed her desire for a time when there would be a single neutral category for both genders.

Emma still used she/her pronouns when she received the Golden Globe, but she has now acknowledged a non-binary identity. Emma will also feature in the upcoming two movies My Policeman and Lady Chatterley's Lover this year.

During her interview, she said, "It's difficult for me at the moment trying to justify in my head being non-binary and being nominated in female categories," Emma stated, despite also insisting that being non-binary is "Not a rejection of femininity".

The topic is reportedly already being discussed at the big award presentations.

BRIT Awards support gender-neutral

The BRIT Awards followed in the footsteps of its American counterparts and became gender-neutral earlier this year, while the Grammys made the bold decision in 2012. Although Adele was given the title of Artist of the Year, she didn't appear to agree with the idea of gender-neutral categories.

As part of the acceptance speech, she said, "I understand why the name of this award has changed, but I really love being a woman and being a female artist." She spoke regarding the female category, I'm really proud of us."

Since then, a BAFTAs spokesman has said that the organization is "engaged in proactive and thoughtful consultation on this subject".

Oscar is on the line with BRIT Awards

It's rumored that the Oscars may explore doing the same as the Grammys and BRIT Awards. However, some contend that the majority groups may suffer greatly if a minority's desires are met.

Challenges in gender-neutral awards

For instance, the arrangement guarantees that both men and women will win in each category yearly. However, using gender-neutral categories might lead to an imbalance in which only one gender is emphasized in a particular area. Having a single impartial category would also reduce the number of acting prizes by half, decreasing the likelihood of winning.

Only 0.4 percent of the population in the UK is thought to be non-binary, according to a variety of sources, including the census.

Emma maintains that they are gender-fluid, even though large organizations now appear to be taking diversity seriously, and claims, "I would never sacrifice integrity or honesty because of work that I may or may not get... [but] I still want to play women."

Let's wait some years for the awards shows to go in for gender-neutral categories.
