    I still don’t understand how previous nominees for widely acclaimed roles in high profile movies like Viggo Mortensen and Hailee Steinfeld as well as foreign legends like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Maggie Cheung (and an acting icon like BETTY WHITE) are invited the same time as people like Luke Evans, Margot Robbie, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek, and Garth Davis who not only have all been famous for like a minute, but also, including Golshifteh Farahani and Gal Gadot, hardly have resumes. Like how did Viggo Mortensen JUST become a member at the same time as Leslie Jones…..

    But at least more women and poc have been added. Like most, I am totally behind the initiative, I just find it funny how somebody can be in five terrible movies and they’re now equal to Betty White. Like actually find it funny not in an angry way. So no need to write a letter.

    Firstly, there are careers beyond Hollywood. Golshifteh Farahani has been an acclaimed actress internationally for years.

    Secondly, Viggo said earlier this year that he’s declined invitations in the past but that he’d be open to joining this year.

    I do realize this but Maggie Cheung has had a far more expansive career both in China and America yet she finally gets an invite? Farahani has her Iranian films and then like five American movies and gets in more easily. Not really arguing about anything, just sucks that so many legends have to wait so long.

    Every year there are former (sometimes already multiple) nominees finally invited which I just find odd. You’ve been nominated, you should get an invite quicker and not at the same time as Leslie Jones. It’s dumb but that’s how they do it I guess!

    I prefer Golshifteh as an actress for her Iranian performances to Viggo…

    But, to your second point, yes — that’s how they’ve always done it. But Viggo’s just not the best example since he’s been invited and rejected it previously.

    Yeah just used him and Hailee as examples because they’re former nominees and I’d apply that to any former nominee, especially ones who have given nominated performances like theirs. Just weird that someone’s good enough to be nominated but then not even vote. Oh well!
