    842 people have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences this year. In terms of diversity, this year’s invitees include 50% women, 29% people of color, and people from 59 different countries. https://www.oscars.org/news/academy-invites-842-membership

    Any invitees that excite you the most?

    I guess the invitees that I liked were:

    Michael Abels
    Adele (lol she’s just now being invited?)
    Claire Foy
    Lady Gaga
    Giancarlo Giannini
    Elizabeth Moss
    Jean-Louis Trintignant

    Tom Holland getting one is…a choice and it kills me.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    Well, to be fair, even if it’s entirely Spanish-language films, Marina de Tavira has a much larger body of work than Yalitza.

    Olivia Colman was invited last year. I don’t know about Yorgos

    Agreed! I totally support her invitation considering her stablished career and very good performance in Roma. Ofc more deserving than Yalitza.

    Some I already thought were members:

    Jenny Lumet
    Adele
    Elisabeth Moss (largely included due to standout television work; same for Damian Lewis and others)
    Tracy Letts
    Annie Lennox (it took this long?)
    Jean-Louis Trintignant

    Really cool that Mélanie Laurent is invited to the Director’s Branch!

    Of course Gaga makes it in and has to decide between two different branches. Wonder which one she will choose.

    I think she can be in both. I know the Grammy’s allow that. The Oscars probably do.

    It’s laughable how they invited Sia before her.

    if you’re invited to 2 different branches (saw Lady Gaga’s name twice), can you nominate for both?
