What is the controversy about gender?

The Britons have sparked a backlash after failing to nominate any woman for Artist of the Year after the male and female categories were eliminated in 2021.

Sam Smith, who is non-binary and publicly supported the genderless category before the change, said the shortlist showed “there’s still a long way to go”.

Former All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis says female stars now face feelings of “ignorance and exclusion”.

A UK spokesman acknowledged the “disappointment” of an all-male shortlist, but said 2022 had “fewer established female artists appearing in major release cycles”.

Overall, 42 percent of nominations this year went to female artists or female lead bands, down from 46 percent last year.
