The Academy Members Project: Non-Members A-Bd

Pictured: Singer-songwriter Adele won an Oscar for her work on the popular James Bond film Skyfall, but she didn’t get an invitation to join the Academy afterward. She’s not alone: Our research has discovered that nearly every branch of the Academy has chosen to leave some of their own nominees and even winners off their membership rolls. Songwriters, documentarians, set decorators and those who work on short films seem particularly susceptible to being overlooked.

Although he has been nominated for many Oscars, he has only attended the awards ceremony once, to pay tribute to New York City in 2002. The LA Times reported the following anecdote from an anonymous Academy veteran: After numerous invitations to join went unanswered by Allen, “then-academy President Karl Malden mailed Allen a letter promising that if the director made a sizable donation to the academy's fundraising effort for its library, the group would leave him alone. He replied within a week with a check.” (The Guardian 2/24/11) (LA TImes 2/19/12) (HollywoodReporter 9/7/2016) (HollywoodReporter 10/11/2017)

  1. Fascinating stuff! Loving your work! Interesting that every nominee isn't invited. And a damn good thing that Rob Schneider has never been and I hope it stays that way. I wonder if Oscar winning Eminem is a voter. Not sure why I'm just curious.

    1. Thanks Pete. I'm not much of a Schneider fan myself, but if he ever does a "serious" film then I can see them letting him in based upon pure volume alone.

      Great question about Eminem. I did a quick search and can't seem to find anything definitive yet. Part of the challenge is that he won a full year before they started making their invitees public, so it is hard to guess. On the one hand, he won, which you would think should automatically qualify you, but on the other hand the Academy has been on such a kick to try to prove how young and hip they are, that if they had actually invited him you would think they would have publicized it better. While his music has been used in lots of films, it may be that 8 Mile is one of the few where it was actually written specifically for the film, so it is possible that they didn't think he had enough screen credits -- the same problem as the younger nominees above. I'll keep researching, and may add him to this page if I can't find anything. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Great article and that answers my doubt on why Woody Allen was absent in most award shows.Thank God Taylor Lautner doesnt get invited and I hope that remains the same forever.That guy really cant act.However Kristen Stewart is deserving.She is a good actress and I really love her work outside Twillight and the oscar nominees that you mentioned especially Abigail definitely deserves an invitation to the club.

    1. Thanks! It wouldn't surprise me at all if the Twilight stars eventually became members--Remember that they are all pretty young by Academy standards. Stewart's projects do make it seem like she might be the first one in--especially with both On The Road and Snow White And The Huntsman this year.

  3. Great post! I see this project is off to a good start. Looking forward to seeing what else you unearth in the process!

    1. Thanks. I suspect that this non-members page may grow over time, as I learn more about how the Academy's invitations happen.
