More Diversity: 395 New Oscar Academy Members

More Diversity: 395 New Oscar Academy Members

The Oscar Academy wants to become more diverse and has invited many women, minorities and international filmmakers as new members. 395 artists have been chosen to vote in the future when awarding the Academy Awards. 46 percent of invitations went to women, about 40 percent to underrepresented ethnic groups, and more than half went to international filmmakers, according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Thursday.

The association, which now has more than 9,000 members, is striving for more diversity after years of wrangling over a lack of diversity. This year, 25 Academy Award winners and actors from 49 countries are on the invitation list. Among the 12 cast members selected are Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova (“Borat Anschluss Moviefilm”) and South Korean Academy Award winner Yoon Yeoh-jung (“Minari”).

One cannot buy the membership, but it is called. He leads the way to the Academy through an Oscar nomination or through other special contributions to the film. Among the many professions, actors make up the largest group, and the next Academy Awards are scheduled for March 27.
