The Academy Members Project U


Updated 3/31/2016

Pictured: Nancy Utley is Co-President of Fox Searchlight, a studio which specializes in distributing independent films that become Oscar contenders, from The Tree Of Life and The Descendants to Black Swan and Slumdog Millionaire. An Academy Governor from the public relations branch, Utley has also worked on blockbusters such as Independence Day, Die Hard, Speed, There’s Something About Mary and Mrs. Doubtfire.

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!
