I also thought it odd that acting and no other profession had their awards divided by gender. (Would "Best Lighting Design by a Woman" make any sense?). It seems as arbitrary as using age, sexual identity, or eye color as a determining factor.
Moreover, when I become king, I would get rid of all the competitions and just award five to ten people with "Outstanding Achievement in (fill in the profession here)". Make the award ceremony a celebration of all the finest rather than a competition with only one "winner" decided by non-quantifiable criteria.
