Pictured: Getting invited to the Academy can be particularly difficult for those artists whose fields are represented by one of the institution’s smaller branches. Documentarian Ruby Yang won an Oscar in 2007 for her documentary short The Blood Of Yingzhou District, but wasn’t invited to join the Academy until four years later, after she had secured a second nomination for The Warriors Of Qiugang.

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!
