The Academy Members Project L


Updated 2/7/2016

Pictured: If Gilligan’s Island was based on true events, the great folks at PricewaterhouseCoopers would have found the castaways within a single Oscar season, when they delivered the ballot to real-life Academy member Tina Louise (Ginger “The Moviestar”!)

As a reminder, Bold font is for confirmed AMPAS members that we are able to document conclusively. Standard font is for confirmed invitees, most of whom presumably accept. Italic font is for those believed to be members, but whose status has not been verified. Members who have passed away are shown using the same system, but in GOLD, and those whose biography is still being researched are in PINK. Read why we are so cautious HERE.

I will be adding more pictures, as well as credits, awards, and of course new names as the project proceeds. And don’t forget to send me recommendations of Oscar voters I may have missed!

  1. I am shocked beyond belief that Christopher Lee is not part of it!

    1. Thanks for reminding me of Christopher Lee. He may be a member, I just haven't been able to find any evidence of it yet. I'll definitely keep searching though!

    2. An update that I found a source for Christopher Lee today. Thanks again for pointing me towards him!

  2. Thanks for the link! I'd been looking forward to seeing legendary Mr Lamont on here! WTF is Martin Lawrence doing though?

    1. Very happy to link to you. I figured that an in-person interview was pretty conclusive proof that he was actually an Academy member!

      I found Lawrence's name in an article about comedians in the Academy. I'm not a fan of his Big Momma series, so if I had to guess I'd say that the screen credits that he probably used for his membership application would have been his role in Do The Right Thing (the film got 2 Oscar noms which could translate into coattail memberships), and holding his own next to Will Smith in Bad Boys. Or possibly one of the comedies where he worked opposite Danny Devito or Tim Robbins?

  3. Wow surely it couldn't just be for being in a film with 2 Oscar noms? Very strange. I don't even think he's particularly good at comedy. While I actually quite liked Bad Boys 2, that has very little to do with Lawrence! I reckon he's paying somebody!

    1. Well, he does have several executive producer titles. It's not always easy to tell which of those are for active involvement and which ones are for being an investor/owner.

      Still, he has been in enough films (and headlined most of them), that I'm not surprised to see him on the list.
