The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences replenishes its ranks each year to replace committee members who die or opt to leave their position.
And every 12 months, the organization endorses new candidates who will be able to vote in upcoming awards ceremonies.
This year’s list of stars also includes Juno‘s screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman, as well as West Wing actress Allison Janney. All the new members have either won or been nominated for an Academy Award during their career.
