(Just The News) The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) is no longer going to have sex-based awards for acting, according to a recent report from Women’s Liberation Front.
The influential critics’ group “decided to cave into gender ideology,” Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) Executive Director Mahri Irvine said Tuesday on the John Solomon Reports podcast.
A whistleblower came to WoLF citing sources claiming that LAFCA had voted narrowly to get rid of sex-based acting awards, Irvine recounted.
“The vote was very close,” she said, adding, “There’s a lot of a lot of dissent” from the planned change.
“They’re no longer gonna give an award to a woman for being ‘Best Actress’ or an award to a man for being ‘Best Actor,'” she reported.
Last month, LAFCA announced on Twitter that they were adding “gender-neutral categories” for their annual awards banquet on Jan. 14, 2023.
“For this year’s awards vote, LAFCA will also introduce gender-neutral acting categories, with two awards for Best Lead Performance and two awards for Best Supporting Performance,” the tweet read. “Our voting meeting will take place on December 11, 2022.”
Irvine sees the vote as appeasement of the woke culture.
“They just said they’re gonna respect all the non-binary- and transgender-identified people out there, and they’re just gonna give awards to people in general who are the best people in acting roles,” she said
