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?July 1, 2019 at 4:27 pm #1202958270
I guess the invitees that I liked were:
Adele (lol she’s just now being invited?)
Tom Holland getting one is…a choice and it kills me.

No Yalitza. Wonk, wonk.July 1, 2019 at 4:52 pm #1202958316

Was Olivia Colman already a member? And Yorgos Lanthimos?July 1, 2019 at 6:10 pm #1202958393
Was Olivia Colman already a member? And Yorgos Lanthimos?
Olivia Colman was invited last year. I don’t know about Yorgos
Well, to be fair, even if it’s entirely Spanish-language films, Marina de Tavira has a much larger body of work than Yalitza.
Agreed! I totally support her invitation considering her stablished career and very good performance in Roma. Ofc more deserving than Yalitza.July 1, 2019 at 6:22 pm #1202958406
Some I already thought were members:
Elisabeth Moss (largely included due to standout television work; same for Damian Lewis and others)
Annie Lennox (it took this long?)
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.July 1, 2019 at 6:33 pm #1202958415
Eli Moss (aka one of the best actress working today) better win that Oscar now.
Also glad for pop queens Adele and Gaga

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