Gender Neutral Oscars

Riddle me this...

Why are the Oscars for actors still broken down along gender lines?

(Someone recommended that I do an Oscar Picks blog, but I still haven't seen half the nominated films...I know that shouldn't stop me, but I'd rather blog on this.)

Anyway, we don't have Best Male Director or Best Sound Effects Generated by a Woman (hmm...). So why the gender division for actors?

There are all sorts of awards for various minorities for writers, but the big ones, the Booker, the Pulitzer, and in SF/F the Hugos and Nebulas...they aren't broken out by gender?

Is it just because we can see them? If so, that's incredibly shallow, don't you think?
