News: Pedro Pascal & 927 New Members Invited to Join The Academy

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. The Academy invited 683 new members in 2016 and 322 in 2015, which were also record numbers. The expansion of Academy membership to more than 8,000 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.

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 from 28% in 2017 to 31%. [Source]
