    Awkwafina, John David Washington, Florence Pugh Among the 819 Invited to Join Oscars Academy

    Awkwafina, Kaitlyn Dever, Cynthia Erivo, Beanie Feldstein, Brian Tyree Henry, Niecy Nash, Florence Pugh, Lakeith Stanfield, Olivia Wilde and John David Washington are among the 819 film professionals who have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Academy announced on Tuesday.Additional invitations went to directors Ari Aster, Mati Diop, Robert Eggers, Ladj Ly and Lulu Wang; to documentary filmmakers David France and Jeff Reichert; to executives Jennifer Salke and Teddy Schwarzman; to musicians and composers Larry Mullen Jr., Max Richter, Arturo Sandoval and Bernie Taupin; to producers Ryan Murphy and Rosalie Swedlin; and to writers Lucy Alibar, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth.A dozen different people from the Best Picture winner “Parasite” were invited to join: actors Choi Woo-Shik, Jang Hye-Jin, Jo Yeo-Jeong. Lee Jung-Eun and Park So-Dam, costume designer Choi Seyeon, editor Yang Jinmo, composer Jung Jae-Il, producer Kwak Sin-Ae, production designer Lee Ha Jun, sound mixer Choi Tae Young and writer Han Jin Won. (Director Bong Joon Ho had already been invited to join.)The number falls short of the 842 new members who were invited last year and the record 928 who received invitations in 2018, but it marks the fifth consecutive year of large new classes of members, with a particular focus on bringing more women and people of color into the organization.Also Read: Oscars Academy Introduces New Inclusion Initiatives, Expands Best Picture CategoryOf the 819 members invited to join this year, 367 are women, 405 are based outside the United States and 294 are from what the Academy terms “underrepresented ethnic or racial communities.”The number of invitations to women means that the Academy will reach its goal of doubling the number of female members since 2016. It has already passed its goal of doubling the number of non-white members.Not everyone who is invited opts to join the Academy, and AMPAS does not reveal the names of those who decline. But based on the number of invitations and the numbers of members added in recent years, more than 95% of those who receive invitations do join.Also Read: Academy Postpones Next Year's Oscars to April 25The Documentary Branch invited more new members than any other branch, 109. Other branches that issued a large number of invitations included the Marketing and Public Relations Branch, with 90, and the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch, with 81. An additional 89 people were invited to join as Members-at-Large, who do not belong to a specific branch but do have Oscar voting privileges. (Agents, who previously were not allowed to vote, were admitted to this branch this week.)Over the past five years, the Academy has extended invitations to more than 4,000 people. At the time it began the membership push, it had 6,436 active members. It now has 9,537, and the number will pass the 10,000 mark with the addition of this year’s class.Here is the complete list of those invited to membership:Actors Yalitza Aparicio – “Roma” Awkwafina –

The galleries will explore all aspects of the art and science of moviemaking and over time will rotate out and change with new movies, artists, eras and genres being highlighted.Some of the initial films and artists who will be spotlighted in the galleries exploring the history of cinema will include Bruce Lee, cinematographer Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki, filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, and the films “Citizen Kane” and “Real Women Have Curves.” The galleries will dives deeply into the worlds of casting and performance, costume, hair and makeup design, the components of sound design, the work of cinematographers and the creation of a story, as well as a variety of other genres and filmmaking styles.Also Read: Academy Museum to Issue Additional $100 Million Bond OfferingThe Academy Museum also unveiled new immersive experiences.

We will tell complete stories of moviemaking–celebratory, educational, and sometimes critical and uncomfortable. Global in outlook and grounded in the unparalleled collections and expertise of the Academy, these first exhibitions will establish this museum as incomparable in the world of cinema,” Academy Museum director Bill Kramer said in a statement.Kramer continued: “We are keenly aware that we’re working towards the opening of the Academy Museum during a time of great challenge. Over the past century, motion pictures have reflected and impacted major historical issues and events. The stories we tell in the Academy Museum are part of those bigger stories, and we are committed to highlighting the social impact of motion pictures. We look forward to brighter days for everyone, everywhere.”Also Read: Laura Dern and 6 Others Added as Academy Museum TrusteesKramer also announced that studio wHY Architecture has been retained to finalize the design of the galleries in the museum’s Saban Building.

    Natalie Portman Responds to Rose McGowan Diss: ‘I Agree’ I’m Not ‘Brave’

    Natalie Portman responded Wednesday to a lengthy attack from Rose McGowan, acknowledging the criticism had some merit but also pushing back in some ways.“I agree with Ms. McGowan that it is inaccurate to call me ‘brave’ for wearing a garment with women’s names on it,” Portman said in a statement provided to TheWrap. “Brave is a term I more strongly associate with actions like those of the women who have been testifying against Harvey Weinstein the last few weeks, under incredible pressure.”McGowan went after Portman in a scathing Facebook post on Tuesday, just two days after Portman appeared at the Oscars with the names of overlooked female directors embroidered into her Dior cape.Also Read: Rose McGowan Dismisses Natalie Portman's Oscars Outfit Honoring Female Directors As 'Deeply Offensive'“The kind of protest that gets rave reviews from the mainstream media for its bravery. Brave? No, not by a long shot. More like an actress acting the part of someone who cares. As so many of them do,” wrote McGowan, who has spent much of her time in the last few years speaking out against disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein as he faces criminal charges for sexual assault and other felony counts.In her response, Portman also reacted to McGowan’s statements about her production company and the fact that Portman is the only female director credited on any of its eight films.“It is true I’ve only made a few films with women. In my long career, I’ve only gotten the chance to work with female directors a few times – I’ve made shorts, commercials, music videos and features with Marya Cohen, Mira Nair, Rebecca Zlotowski, Anna Rose Holmer, Sofia Coppola, Shirin Neshat and myself,” she said. “Unfortunately, the unmade films I have tried to make are a ghost history.”Also Read: Oscars 2020: Natalie Portman Wears Cape Embroidered With Names of Female Directors Not Nominated (Video)She concluded, “So I want to say, I have tried, and I will keep trying.

    Rose McGowan Dismisses Natalie Portman’s Oscars Outfit Honoring Female Directors As ‘Deeply Offensive’

    Rose McGowan went after fellow actress Natalie Portman in a scathing Facebook post on Tuesday, just two days after Portman appeared at the Oscars with the names of overlooked female directors embroidered into her Dior cape.“The kind of protest that gets rave reviews from the mainstream media for its bravery. Brave? No, not by a long shot. More like an actress acting the part of someone who cares. As so many of them do,” wrote McGowan, who has spent much of her time in the last few years speaking out against disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein as he faces criminal charges for sexual assault and other felony counts.“I find Portman’s type of activism deeply offensive to those of us who actually do the work. I’m not writing this out of bitterness, I am writing out of disgust,” she went on. “I just want her and other actresses to walk the walk.”Also Read: Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Doesn't Understand the Seriousness of His Accused Actions 'At All'She also tore into Portman’s history within her own production company, Handsomecharlie Films: “Natalie, you have worked with two female directors in your very long career — one of them was you. You have a production company that has hired exactly one female director — you.” (Editor’s note: Portman worked with director Mira Nair in 2008’s “New York, I Love You.”)A review of the company’s films proves that to be true. Portman has directed two of the company’s eight movies. The other six were directed by men.“I was at a Women in Film event that you spoke at once, Natalie. You reeled off depressing statistics and then we all went back to our salads. I quickly realized you and the other women speakers (and that joke of an organization) are just… frauds. You say nothing, you do nothing,” McGowan wrote.Also Read: Oscars 2020: Natalie Portman Wears Cape Embroidered With Names of Female Directors Not Nominated (Video)A representative for Women in Film — one of the longest-running organizations fighting for parity in the industry — did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Representatives for Portman also did not immediately return a request for comment.During Sunday’s pre-Oscars red carpet event, Los Angeles Times journalist Amy Kaufman tweeted a video showing that Portman’s custom outfit bore the names of Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Lorene Scafaria, Marielle Heller, Alma Har’el and Mari Diop, and others. All of them are female directors who were not nominated for an award at the ceremony this year.You can watch Portman explain her fashion — and political — statement below:Natalie Portman embroidered her Dior cape with all of the female directors who weren't nominated for Oscars.
