    The annual rotation of one third of the members of the Academy Board of Governors has taken place. Details:

    Beverly Hills, CA – Six first-time governors have been elected to the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – Dante Spinotti, representing the Cinematographers branch; Lisa Cholodenko, Directors branch; Dick Cook, Executives; John Knoll, Visual Effects; Scott Millan, Sound; and Bill Condon, Writers. In addition, seven incumbents were reelected and three other motion picture professionals will return to the Board after a time away.

    Returning to the board after a hiatus are Michael Mann, Directors; Arthur Hamilton, Music; and Kathleen Kennedy, Producers. Mann previously served from 2000 to 2006. Hamilton most recently served from 2008 to 2011, he has served a total of 33 years. Kennedy was on the board from 1994 to 1997 and again from 2002 to 2011.

    The reelected governors are Tom Hanks, Actors; Jim Bissell, Designers; Rob Epstein, Documentary; Mark Goldblatt, Film Editors; Leonard Engelman, Makeup and Hairstylists; Rob Friedman, Public Relations and Bill Kroyer; Short Films & Feature Animation. 

    Back to me: this means Kathleen Kennedy, possibly the leading contender for the Thalberg award, doesn’t win in the next three years (BoG members excluded for consideration).

    Also, if I recall correctly, Tom Sherak was term limited as a board member and they now need very quickly to elect a new president.

    Maybe Kennedy will win the competitive award she deserves? She will likely add another nomination this year.

    Irrespective, she still will win the Thalberg at some point. Most Thalberg winners have previously won Oscars.

    Oh sure. I would just like to see her win competitively as well. A three-year Thalberg ineligibility would make a good time for it since she is likely to get her eighth nomination.

    Wasn’t Annette Bening part of the BoG or something? What happened to her?

    She is one of the 21 members who weren’t up for election this year, and is still on the board.

    Confirmed that they need to elect a new president at their first August meeting. Sherak served three straight three year terms on the board, thus forced to retire. There is a chance he might return after a one year break, with an interim president (Hawk Koch?). Not sure how this will effect the voting on honorary Oscars, scheduled for August also.

    Do you the exact date of the voting by any chance? If I’m not mistake last year the Governors Awards winners were announced on August 3.

    At this point, we don’t know that, nor if they will be voting on honorary Oscars that night. It might be the electing a president is enough of an agenda for a single meeting, and also that they will want to have the president in place for an interim between his/her selection and the voting.
