I am exceedingly proud of the work that my fellow researchers and I have done this year on The Academy Members Project - our ongoing attempt to identify and celebrate as many Oscar voters as possible. We have identified 4,835 current members (nearly 70% of the full AMPAS membership!), as well as over 4,400 historical members.
Oscar voting runs from February 6 to February 17, so we’ll be paying extra attention to twitter, facebook and instagram during that period to see if any members post when they have cast their ballots.
My final Oscar predictions will be updated soon - likely after the Directors Guild Awards are announced.
And thanks for checking out my blog!
