Academy Invites 115 to Become Members - including Jennifer Aniston, Adriana Barraza and Steve Carell
Beverly Hills, CA (rushprnews) June 18, 2007 – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is extending invitations to join the organization to 115 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.
Those who accept the invitation will be the only additions in 2007 to the Academy’s roster of voting members.“These individuals are all exceptionally accomplished in their respective fields,” said Academy President Sid Ganis. “We’re looking forward to having them join the Academy’s ranks.”
The membership policies that the Academy adopted four years ago in order to slow the growth of the organization would have allowed a maximum of nearly 150 new members in 2007, but as in the previous three years, the various branch committees endorsed far fewer candidates than were proposed to them. Voting membership in the organization has now held steady at just under 6,000 members for four years.
“The numbers are stabilizing nicely,” said Academy Executive Director Bruce Davis, “but at the same time some interesting changes are occurring. Like the recent lists of Oscar® nominees, our last few membership invitation lists have been increasingly international.”
New members will be welcomed into the Academy at an invitation-only reception at the Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study in Beverly Hills in September.
The 2007 invitees are:
Jackie Earle Haley
M. David Mullen
Xavier Perez Grobet
Frank J. Chiocchi
Valerie Van Galder Costume Designers
Andrew W. Gumpert
Michael J. Lambert
Live Action Short Films
John E. Jackson
Michael J. Benavente
Steven D. Williams
John Andrew Berton Jr.
Alan E. Lorimer
Douglas H. Smith
Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
Erin Cressida Wilson
