SAG Rejects ‘Billions’ Star Asia Kate Dillon’s Call to Abolish Gender Specific Awards Categories

The Screen Actors Guild, which puts on the SAG Awards, has rejected a call from Billions star Asia Kate Dillon to abolish gender specific awards categories. The actor claimed that the categories needed to be changed because referring to performers as male or female will “erase non-binary identities” and “serve as an endorsement of the gender binary at large.”
