    I’ve mentioned this in the past but I absolutely despise these Pop Solo, R&B Solo et al categories. They should be split by gender. The mostly large shut out of females in the Rap categories underscores my point. And I’d bring back the R&B/Duo or Group category as well.

    The Academy Awards would never merge Best Actor and Actress, etc.

    There’s no need for gender split in this day and age. The categories are fine just the way they are.

    Female rap has always been underrated in the rap field, and it has only had two years where there was a gender split there, with Missy Elliott winning both (she won in the combined solo performance category a year prior). So, not sure why the lack of females in the rap field is being used to justify a need to have gendered categories again. And there’s a panel, so maybe they felt that no females truly deserved it this year other than Cardi B.

    The Academy Awards and The Grammys are two different sectors of entertainment, and the Academy Awards has its own issues that need addressing.
