Why is it only actors for SAGA?
@ucme’s recent questions about great actors and actresses reminded me that in the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards the categories were:
Outstanding performance by a male actor in…
Outstanding performance by a female actor in…
I couldn’t think of a good reason why they wouldn’t call the women actresses as opposed to female actors. Even Claire Danes had to point that out in her Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series acceptance speech. She said “I guess I’m an actor, not an actresssss”.
What’s your take on this?
