Pictured: The Matrix star Keanu Reeves does more for the Academy than simply providing another pretty face for the cameras. He also served as a member of the committee that watched all the foreign language submissions and decided which ones should be nominated for the 81st Academy Awards.

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. Let's just hope he is a better judge than actor, but still- what a random category to put him in!

    1. Thanks Amelie! My sense is that they try to get a broad range of viewpoints for the committees, but I'll admit that this choice intrigued me. I still need to do some research to find out if they recruit people for that committee or if he volunteered based on his own interest in foreign films.

  2. Nice post! I've always been curious about the Academy members. Yay Keanu! :D I always think he's smarter than people give him credit for. I'm curious to see his documentary about digital vs. film debate.

    1. Thanks Ruth. I think in some ways he gets blamed for being too convincing in the Bill & Ted series. But in fairness he has actually done quite a lot of different types of films, from indie gems to big box office.

      And thanks for the tip about Side By Side. I hadn't realized that he was a producer for that until I just looked it up!
