"Billions" Star Asia Kate Dillon Questions Emmys’ Gender Binary Acting Categories




Asia Kate Dillon, who plays a gender non-binary person on the hit Showtime series Billions, has written to the Television Academy asking them to reconsider gender-specific acting awards.

Dillon, who goes by the pronouns "they" and "them," will be submitted for consideration for an Emmy Award and requested "more information from the Academy as to whether or not they use the words actor and actress to refer to assigned sex or identity."

3 Generations poster




To recap: 3 Generations is the film that was formerly About Ray. The film premiered at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival and was supposed to be released in theatres later that month. Instead it was abruptly pulled, possibly because of bad reviews, possibly because of all the negative press the writer-director got for referring to the character that Elle Fanning plays (who is a trans boy) as a girl, possibly because of Weinstein's financial woes or maybe a combo of all three.
