Actors or actresses? (letter)


by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, September 18, 2010
Sir,

Would someone kindly explain to me why it is that, during most of the politically-correct year, actresses are referred to as "actors"? However when the Emmy or Academy awards are on the horizon, nobody seems keen to simply compete for an all-in best actor award.

All of a sudden, artists are quite happy to revert to the title "actress", a word which is more definitive and less confusing, particularly if an actress is named Chris, Pat or even Sam.

Frank Bellet,
Petrie, Qld
