The Academy Members Project Baa to Baq

Pictured: While Rick Baker may not be a household name, I guarantee that you are familiar with his work. As a makeup artist, Baker has won 7 Academy Awards, and has created werewolves, apes, X-men, nutty professors, and the aliens in Men In Black. And one of his most famous works makes a comeback every Halloween in the form of the zombies in Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

  1. Great job! I hope Burstyn is on there. She definitely deserves a vote!

    1. Thanks. I'm pretty sure that Burstyn is in. As an Oscar winner with five additional nominations, it would just be strange if she weren't! Still, we do know of a few high-profile folks like Woody Allen who have rejected the Academy's invitations, so I left her in the italic font because I haven't yet found any sources with the magical phrase "Academy member Ellen Burstyn" or "Oscar Voter Ellen Burstyn." Still, I suspect that is only because everyone says "Academy Award WINNER Ellen Burstyn" instead.

    2. Update: Pete, it took a while, but we finally found an interview where Ellen Burstyn talks about being an Oscar voter. So we can finally move her from "assumed" to "confirmed". Link is above.

  6. Meredith Baxter dropped Birney from her surname when she and David Birney divorced.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good catch!
      I'll keep the Baxter-Birney as an aka name in parenthesis, both because there's a whole generation that still recognizes her by that name, and because it helps me with the research when I run across a historical document that has her listed as such. Otherwise, there's too great a danger that I'll end up listing her twice!
