  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.
