news//THE ACADEMY SELECTS NEWEST MEMBERS AS THE CLASS OF 2017

AWARDS COVERAGE



The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has invited its newest class of members, bringing the total to over 8,000.

For two years now, Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, has championed a reform to the invitation procedure, with the intent to bring diversity in all forms to the forefront of the Academy's makeup.

The Class of 2017 includes 774 new members (the most for a single year), representing 57 countries. The new class is 39% female and 30% people of color. The new class also represents 24 Oscar winners. The youngest invitee is Elle Fanning (19). The oldest is Betty White (95). Many of the names, especially in the acting branch, are current or rising stars, including Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot. In other branches, names like Tom Ford (directing) Jordan Peele (writing) show up.

Here is the complete list of invitees, by branch:
