Emma Watson takes first major gender-neutral movie award: ‘Antidote to all the vile old white men’ – The Washington Post‘s top story by a young reporter hired ten years ago, from New Orleans…the people running that paper have written a very foul headline and I hope Emma sues them for defamation of character. This story illustrates the insane filters/thinking systems of the WP staff who must walk this tightrope set up by liberals. The fail in this case is pretty epic. And this is worth examining further.
Why put an offensive quote from a random Twitter user in the headline to ruin and distort the story? Disgraceful headline.7:50 AM EDT

The “vile old white men” comment was apparently written by someone not worthy of being named in the body of the article. This passes for journalism: “Someone on twitter said…”
Many of the comments to this story mention that they wish they could have the name of the reporter who wrote this headline and article.
The readers of the WP aren’t particularly astute. The name of the author of the offensive article is at the beginning of the article. And easy to find is further information as my photo at the top shows, taken from Mr. Andrew’s own Twitter account.
Emma Watson became the first person to win the MTV Movie and TV Awards’ new gender-neutral Best Actor in a Movie award Sunday night for her performance as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast.” The awards show also added a gender-less best actor category for television.
The trick here is, anyone can win this award. How novel. Ahem. The ‘best male/female’ award business is to hand out a maximum number of awards. So cutting this down to just one award is in my mind, a welcome cut back on endless awards.
Of course, this isn’t the point MTV is making. They wanted ‘gender neutral’ because it is the ‘hip’ thing today.
These are the first major gender-neutral acting awards. Most, like the Golden Globes and the Oscars, have separate categories for actors and actresses.
Boo. Hiss. How dare they! I say, shouldn’t these actors and actresses protest the Oscars by turning in their prizes? This would show real indignation.
“The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience,” she said.
This bimbo goes around in movies playing desirable females. How dare she! True, she was cast as ‘strong girl’ roles but still, she didn’t marry a lesbian or have a sex change operation movie or whatever. She always played a female and a subtext was, she was also sexy or desirable due to being a female.
“MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” added Watson. “But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”
As I noted above, she was always a female female who had female thingies going on, namely, the same old same old love stories. The Harry Potter love story angered most viewers because it was so obviously rigged and unnatural. But still, the point was, her character was a desirable female who fell in love with someone and then fought a monster via this love. That is, a big, fat snake…!
Harry Potter love story may have been wrong, admits JK Rowling who was embarrassed by how it turned out.
Dillon, who identifies as gender non-binary, sparked conversation about the gendered categories in major acting awards earlier this year when Showtime submitted Dillon’s performance for the Emmys. No one, Dillon included, knew which category to choose for submission: best actor or best actress.
Showrunners David Levien and Brian Koppelman auditioned cis, trans and gender non-binary actors for the role, and cast Dillon after the third audition. Dillon’s performance not only inspired the writers to give Dillon more to do, but also impressed everyone on set. “Our cast and crew, basically to a person, all came up to us after Asia’s first day with the general attitude of ‘holy s–t that person is amazing,’” report the creators. “And that only grew throughout the season.”
If basing awards on ‘male’ or ‘female’….Some Like It Hot was made way back in the Stone Ages, 1959, and in it, two witnesses to a gangster wipe out run from the Mafia by dressing as women. In the end, one of them marries a very rich man, while pretending to be a woman. It won awards back then! And it is easy to see who is ‘male’ or ‘female’ via either genetics or how they want to be seen.
That is, the awards back in 1959 should have been ‘best female actress’ in the role of a man marrying another man. He was acting as an actress, a woman which is why his role was so funny and entrancing at the same time.
Jack Lemmon did a fine job of becoming a ‘woman’ in that movie. He should have won ‘best actress’ for he did a splendid job of acting. His co-star, Marilyn Monroe, simply walked around being herself which is not much in the way of ‘acting’.
Throughout history, men played women on stage. It wasn’t until modern times that women played women. In Shakespeare’s plays, he had zero women acting on stage. When women did begin to appear after 1750, they were often courtesans and the idea that actresses were whores ran alongside for nearly 200 years.
Back to the WP article:
So Dillon wrote a letter to the Television Academy.
“I’d like to know if in your eyes ‘actor’ and ‘actress’ denote anatomy or identity and why it is necessary to denote either in the first place?” Dillon asked in the letter. “The reason I’m hoping to engage you in a conversation about this is because if the categories of ‘actor’ and ‘actress’ are in fact supposed to represent ‘best performance by a person who identifies as a woman’ and ‘best performance by a person who identifies as a man’ then there is no room for my identity within that award system binary.”
It is about time they did away with sex awards and revert to the older system. That is, anyone can play a man or woman. If they are successful, fine. Indeed, having people switch like this is good practice for actors. Most women actors slide along, barely acting at all, just relying on being ‘female’ to get jobs.
This has been a huge problem in the US. In England, thanks to the different set up of systems for actors, ‘character actors’ abound. In the US, people play ‘themselves’ all the time so they find someone who is what they are to act rather than having someone put on a different ‘face’ for each role.
This is why so many Brits come to Hollywood over the years: they really can act. The winner of this ‘asexual’ award is…a British young lady! Ahem. We really should call these awards ‘British Acting Awards’. That would reveal the truth of how things operate.
Emma continued by praising the character of Belle.
“The villagers in our fairy tale wanted to make Belle believe that the world is smaller than the way she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her — that her curiosity and passion for knowledge and her desire for more in life were grounds for alienation,” she said. “I loved playing someone who didn’t listen to any of that. I’m so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does.”
That stupid children’s movie was all about killing the masculine male, Gaston, and replacing him with a Beast who fought Gaston as a monster but as soon as he won, became a tamed poodle. HAHAHA. The very masculine man was replaced with a much less muscled ‘prince’ who only wanted to please a female, not push her around.

That is, Beauty was the boss now. Oh, and the ‘prince’ was put under a spell by a pissed off old hag who had great powers, too. Boy, was he jerked around a great deal by angry females.
I once had a stallion that was clipped so he was no longer a stud. He hated everyone and fought everyone and when I got him, I tamed him using a whip and a rope.
Yes, he got smacked when he attacked me and I forced him to my will and eventually we became best buddies and he was very good, he would even fight a bear for me, never turned on me again and was very loving. But the battles we went through for two weeks!
In the cartoon and movie, Belle never used a whip or rope but did female weak stuff like cringing away from the Beast, crying, etc. She even ran off! I never liked that story when I was young, but then, I grew up taming wild animals and ‘breaking’ horses.
The general reaction to Sunday’s speech was positive, as summed up in several Web publication headlines. The HuffPost’s headline claimed the speech “Left Us All Feeling Inspired.” Mashable’s called it “majorly inspiring, duh.” MTV, perhaps self-servingly, called it both “beautiful” and super inspiring.”
Yes, they gushed all over this. I find it horrible that this ‘award’ was for an anti-feminist movie of the most retrograde sort. The inherent contradictions within the liberal movement are screaming here.
The fact that a young black writer for the WP and the staff at that Amazon.com company couldn’t see the nastiness of the headline or the mess of an article, tells us that they are blind to what they are creating. This Frankenstein monster of PC perfection is a monster.
They have to stop. Don’t call this an ‘asexual award’. Just call it ‘an award’. And then give it to the next animal that stars in a movie. They are the real ones being overlooked here. How dare we be for only our own species?
