The Academy Members Project O

Pictured: While the Academy is often criticized for having too many older members, they do make room for the youngsters once in a while. Haley Joel Osment was invited to join the Academy at the age of 11, after his Oscar-nominated role in The Sixth Sense. Because Academy membership lasts for life, there is always a risk in admitting younger members. Someone who is universally recognized today may not be as popular down the line, and there is always the danger that their professional path may shift away from the film industry altogether. Thankfully Osment, now in his 20’s, has continued with his acting career both onscreen and on Broadway.

    1. Thanks Alex!
      I'll be watching very closely to see if he shows up on the Academy's Memorial Page. I've been searching for confirmations since the very beginning, given the number of books he's written about the Academy, but have never been able to find anything definitive for him.
