A record 928 people have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Here’s the full list linked below. https://www.oscars.org/news/academy-invites-928-membership
List below who you’re most excited to see join.June 25, 2018 at 12:32 pm #1202572819
Kendrick Lamar stands out among the music invitees. Why do short films and feature animation share a branch? Who are the biggest rectified oversights?
Hank Azaria was nominated for an individual SAG film award twenty-two years ago.
Michel Gondry won an Oscar fourteen years ago.
Jonathan Nolan was nominated for an Oscar eighteen years ago.
Not exactly waiting for years like the above, but Anthony McCarten had to get three Oscar nominations before getting an invitation.
On the other hand, the invitation for Justin Simien only has one credit attached because he has only directed one film (that got no Oscar nominations).June 25, 2018 at 12:41 pm #1202572825
Also, Abigail Breslin and Melissa Etheridge were nominated for and won an Oscar respectively 10 years ago.
Quvenzhane Wallis was nominated for an Oscar five years ago.
Joi McMillon was nominated for an Oscar last year.June 25, 2018 at 12:53 pm #1202572839
This year’s new inductees could be the tipping point for reducing the rubber stamping that plagues awards season. There have been so many new members during the past few years that we should start seeing more surprising and deserving nominees that other groups fail to recognize.
Congrats to all of the new members.June 25, 2018 at 1:03 pm #1202572843

Crazy numbers! Some of these invites are ridiculous, yet they snub an actual Oscar winner with Kobe. Anywho … congratulations to the newbies!June 25, 2018 at 2:59 pm #1202573092
Whoa! J.K Rowling is invited. Almost all people connected to Harry Potter films are getting invitations. Last year some actors were invited.June 25, 2018 at 3:06 pm #1202573115
I’m in shock for Jada Pinkett Smith and Liv Tyler. I thought they are already a member since they are prominent celebs and been at the Oscars for so many times.June 25, 2018 at 3:11 pm #1202573138This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 25, 2018 at 3:13 pm #1202573148This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 25, 2018 at 3:16 pm #1202573160
