Thanks Trans!

There were other actresses who had Asian ancestry nominated in that category. Michelle Yeoh is the first actress to identify as Asian to be nominated. Conceptually it is easy to understand but hard to articulate. THR gave its best shot.

Is that a dig at Merle Oberon?

Trending on Twitter now

It does seem to be specifically referencing Merle Oberon, an Anglo-Indian born in Bombay who hid her ethnicity to work in Hollywood

They could have just said “First East Asian Actress” for MY and avoided the faux pas

I identify as fed up with this PC bullshit. I’ve always been a Mac user.

How long before one of the nominees in the acting categories steps up and says they were offended by the category they were nominated in, because they are non-binary / gender-fluid ? I say at least one before March 12.

They could have just written it like this, but they purposely went out of their way to adopt Trans language
