    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).

    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.

    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.

    Crazy numbers! Some of these invites are ridiculous, yet they snub an actual Oscar winner with Kobe. Anywho … congratulations to the newbies!

    Whoa! J.K Rowling is invited. Almost all people connected to Harry Potter films are getting invitations. Last year some actors were invited.

    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.

    I’m more okay with Simien being allowed to join the Academy due to Dear White People being such a critically acclaimed film. I’d rather he be voting on the Oscars than someone who has made 20 films that all were either mediocre or terrible.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    For me, Dave Chappelle is a standout on the list because I think he is very intelligent and would be a perfectly reasonable judge for a job as important as voting on the Oscars.

    I fear no matter who they let in we will still see whoever the Golden Globes nominate and award go on to dominate the whole season.
