    A person can nominate in the branch they join plus any branch in which they received a nomination. George Clooney is a member of the actors branch but can also nominate in directing and writing. Everyone nominates for Best Picture.

    A couple of people have mentioned the absence of Yalitza Aparicio. I think the reason she hasn’t been invited is because the Academy usually invites people who have had a number of credits behind them. As Aparicio only has one she will probably have to wait until she gets another few under her belt.

    Streisand was probably a rare exception when she was invited after getting nominated for her screen debut Funny Girl.

    If Yalitza Aparicio had won the Oscar, she might have gotten an invite, much like Lupita Nyong’o did after winning for her debut in 12 Years A Slave.

    With the invitation of Helen McCrory and Gemma Jones I think the Academy had invited most of the actors of Harry Potter film series.

    I’m shock that Giancarlo Giannini is not yet a member.

    Does everybody think that is fair? It gives people a bunch of power in determining nominations. I think someone should stick to one.

    29% people of color is still low in my opinion.

    Minorities make up around 40% right now in the U.S. It should be proportionate.

    That language is unnecessary. Cease and desist!

    Poor Mildred. There’s no freedom of speech in this Thatcher dictatorship.

    I love being a literate person.
