I am exceedingly proud of the work that my fellow researchers and I are doing on The Academy Members Project - our ongoing attempt to identify and celebrate as many Oscar voters as possible. We have identified 5,570 current members (Over 78% of the full AMPAS membership!), as well as nearly 4,700 historical members.
We’ve also done an analysis of which of this year’s Oscar nominees are already voters (meaning they can vote for themselves!), and which one’s aren’t. You can find that here.
And the great folks at Awards Daily recently let me do a guest post about the Academy’s branches. Be sure to check it out and show them some love here.
For those who are visiting for the first time, the title of this blog “Never Too Early Movie Predictions” comes from the original days when this blog focused exclusively on Oscar predictions. I’ll probably start those back up again at some point in the future, but for the current season I’m focusing on growing our list of Oscar voters instead.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
