Asia Kate Dillon of Billions is calling on the Television Academy to scrap gendered categories. But the organisation and others have no plans for change, for now.

Sam Smith, the British crooner with a voice often described as heaven sent, announced in September that "my pronouns are they/them." Days later, the Brit Awards, which had nominated Smith for top male artist earlier in the year, said the categories would be reconsidered for 2021.

If the Brit Awards do go gender-neutral, they would join the Grammys, which did away with separate male and female awards in 2012, and MTV's Video Music
