The Academy Members Project: Non-Members A-D


Updated 7/28/2015

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.

When I started doing research to learn who the members of the Academy were, I would occasionally come across articles pointing out the surprising number of famous people who were NOT members of the Academy as well. Originally intended as a checklist to keep me from duplicating research on a few of the most common names that I encountered, these NON-Member pages have grown into a much more substantial project over the years.

These pages also help to correct some frequent misperceptions about the Academy, the most common of which is the myth that all Oscar winners and nominees automatically get invited to join: They Don’t, as you’ll see below.

Of course, the reasons that someone isn’t an Oscar voter can vary. For many, it is simply that they’ve never received an invitation. Learning who they are opens up the possibility of debating (or defending) the Academy’s high standards, membership procedures, and demographic challenges. It also helps us to predict who might get an invitation next year!

But for other people, the reason that they’re on these pages is because they’ve turned down their invitation or resigned their membership for some reason. I’ve tried to distinguish these folks by indenting them below. The media loves to drum up a “scandal” by juxtaposing the more famous of these names (like Woody Allen or George Lucas) with lesser-known members who have accepted entrance. But that always seems unfair to me. It’s inaccurate to act like the Academy “snubbed” the people that are indented below. Rather, there is simply no way to force someone to join (or stay) if they don’t want to.

These Non-Member pages utilize a slightly modified version of the Bold - Standard - Italics - Orange - Pink rules that we use on the main member pages (as explained here). We still use the font strength to visually represent how certain our proof is for each entry, but have relaxed our requirements slightly to recognize the difficulty of proving a negative (that someone is NOT a member). For example, you’ll see the year 2004 mentioned extensively in the links below. That refers to the year that the Academy began publicly announcing their list of invitees. If your favorite artist had their first film (or their first big breakthrough) after 2004, and they don’t show up as being invited on this site’s main pages, then there’s a strong inference that they’re not an Oscar voter yet. Similarly, celebrities who don’t appear on the Academy’s Official Memoriam Page (which is different and more official than the memorial montage shown during Oscar telecasts) within a few months of their passing are tentatively recorded here.

Note that even under these slightly relaxed standards, we still require some specific reason for believing that someone is not a member before we add them to these pages. Those artists who we simply do not know about either way are found on our Wish List instead. Like all aspects of this ongoing research project, however, we are happy to make changes as new information becomes available, so please let us know if you think we’ve gotten something wrong!

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)

  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.
