Who would have thought the bright minds that delivered unto us JERSEY SHORE, TEEN MOM and so many more classics would be at the forefront of an awards movement that will feature gender-neutral categories for acting.
Yup, MTV Movie Awards is following in the footsteps of the Grammys, which did away with gendered performance categories in 2012. The MTV Movie Awards represents a significant cultural shift for the Gen V-leaning network. I give props to MTV for realizing that their younger audience doesn’t see male/female dividing lines like generations past and wouldn’t be surprised to see more awards shows (Hello, Oscars, I call thee by thy name) adopting a post-gender perspective going forward.
What do you think of going gender neutral on the awards?
Yay or No Way?
