DO YOU THINK acting awards for film and television should get rid of ‘male’ and ‘female’ categories and be gender-neutral?

Last night, actor Emma Watson received the first gender-neutral award at the MTV TV and Movie Awards for her role as Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

But the British public seems divided on whether this is a good idea. A YouGov poll found that 32% of Brits think MTV scrapping the ‘male’ and ‘female’ categories at its awards is a good idea, while 27% think it’s a bad idea.

So we’re asking, Do you think acting awards should get rid of ‘male’ and ‘female’ categories?
