Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)
This year, a record 928 people were invited to join the motion picture academy and will be eligible to vote for the 2019 Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous four years: 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The executive committee of the branch must endorse the application before forwarding it to the Board of Governors for final approval.

Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)

  • The Wrap
Here’s Who Should Play the Kids From ‘It’ as Adults in ‘Chapter 2’ (and Who Really Is Playing Them)
Stephen King’s novel “It” is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults. With “It: Chapter One” a huge horror movie success, here’s who we think should pick up the reins in “It: Chapter Two.”

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher): Edward Norton

An essential part of Bill Denbrough is that, as a child, he struggled with a stuttering problem. Jaeden Lieberher did a solid job dealing with the stutter as the leader of the Losers Club. Edward Norton, who has a decent physical resemblance to Lieberher, has proven to be one of the best stutterers possibly ever in his turn in the 1996 thriller “Primal Fear.” When he returns to Derry, the stutter does to, giving Norton a chance to deploy those skills again.

Jaeden Lieberher’s Choice: Christian Bale

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to become Academy members, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new invited members (Melissa Etheridge) and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen from

Academy Invites Record 928 New Members

  • Variety
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a record number of new members, extending invites to 928 people.

The Academy topped last year’s record of 774 new members. It invited 683 members in 2016 and 322 in 2015, which were also record numbers.

The expansion of Academy membership to more than 9,200 stems from an ongoing effort to diversify its ranks following uproar over the lack of African-American nominees in 2015 and 2016, which culminated in 2016’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Two weeks after the widely criticized nominations were announced, AMPAS announced a goal to double the number of women and diverse members of the Academy by 2020.

If all the 2018 invitees accept, the overall membership would be 9,226.

Monday’s invitations, if accepted, will result in 38% of the Oscars’ governing body’s new class being comprised of people of color, increasing their representation from 13% in 2017 to 16%.

Meanwhile, the new class is 49% female, boosting the total representation of women

Why Ed Norton in “Primal Fear” is the Best Movie Debut Performance Ever

There are debut performances that are so incredible in some movies that they just blow everyone away. Edward Norton in Primal Fear is one of those that stands as one of the greatest debut performances ever for one reason, it was a raw and unfettered as it could be. If you know the story then you’d know that Norton plays an altar boy that brutally murders a well-respected Archbishop and is standing trial for it. The young man, Aaron, is completely out of his depth, has a stutter, and is not strong in any way that is easy to define.

Frances McDormand movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Fargo,’ ‘Almost Famous’

Frances McDormand movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Three Billboards,’ ‘Fargo,’ ‘Almost Famous’
The 2017 film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” has now placed its star Frances McDormand back on the in-demand list for actresses over a certain age. Long before this comeback, McDormand won the 1996 Best Actress award for her role in “Fargo” and also had supporting nominations for “Mississippi Burning” (1988), “Almost Famous” (2000), and “North Country” (2005). A second Academy Award could be hers on March 4, especially since she has already won at the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, Critics’ Choice and more.

McDormand is also part of an elite group of actors who have won the “Triple Crown of Acting.” That distinction is given to actors who have won all three of the major acting awards given: the Oscar, Emmy and Tony. McDormand won her Emmy for the HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge” in 2015. She was also nominated for another Emmy for her supporting role in the TV movie “Hidden in America” in 1997.
