Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)
This year, a record 928 people were invited to join the motion picture academy and will be eligible to vote for the 2019 Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous four years: 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The executive committee of the branch must endorse the application before forwarding it to the Board of Governors for final approval.

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to become Academy members, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new invited members (Melissa Etheridge) and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen from

Academy Invites Record 928 New Members

  • Variety
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a record number of new members, extending invites to 928 people.

The Academy topped last year’s record of 774 new members. It invited 683 members in 2016 and 322 in 2015, which were also record numbers.

The expansion of Academy membership to more than 9,200 stems from an ongoing effort to diversify its ranks following uproar over the lack of African-American nominees in 2015 and 2016, which culminated in 2016’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Two weeks after the widely criticized nominations were announced, AMPAS announced a goal to double the number of women and diverse members of the Academy by 2020.

If all the 2018 invitees accept, the overall membership would be 9,226.

Monday’s invitations, if accepted, will result in 38% of the Oscars’ governing body’s new class being comprised of people of color, increasing their representation from 13% in 2017 to 16%.

Meanwhile, the new class is 49% female, boosting the total representation of women

Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair Gets Captain America Director

Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair Gets Captain America Director
After announcing last year that the Chronicles of Narnia franchise will be "restarted" with the new movie The Silver Chair, the producers have finally found their director. Joe Johnston has signed on to direct this fantasy adventure, marking his first movie since the 2014 thriller Not Safe For Work. No cast members have been set at this time, but this story will feature characters from the original C.S. Lewis novels, who haven't been featured in any of the previous movies.

Variety broke the news today, which comes eight months after producer Mark Gordon joined forces with Sony's TriStar Pictures, eOne and The C.S. Lewis Company for this restart. David Magee came aboard to write the screenplay in 2013, although the studios haven't set a release date or a production start date at this time quite yet. Here's what producer Mark Gordon had to say about bringing Joe Johnston in to direct The Silver Chair.

Andrew Garfield Says He Was Passed Over For ‘Prince Caspian’ Because He Was “Not Handsome Enough”

Andrew Garfield has hit many peaks (and valleys) in his career, from doing big, mega-blockbuster movies (“The Amazing Spider-Man“) to working with Martin Scorsese (“Silence“), but things didn’t always work out for the young actor. It seems at one point in his career, he was keen on playing the titular character in “The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” but he didn’t have the right stuff, or more accurately, the right face.

Andrew Garfield is currently one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, but the 33-year-old star tells Et there’s “plenty” of roles he didn't land, including one that “really stung” just before his career took off.

“I really wanted to play...,” Garfield starts but then laughs before continuing, “This is so silly. There was a Narnia movie. The Prince Caspian film... "

He’s of course referring to 2008’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – which came out just two years before The Social Network hit theaters and put Garfield on the map.

Ben Barnes ultimately got it,” Garfield adds. “Ben Barnes, I'll get ya! No, I really just wanted that part… I think the feedback was ‘he's not handsome enough.’ What can you do? Hey, I'm not handsome enough for Prince Caspian.”

‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ set pics: Jon Bernthal starts shooting

The next big Marvel TV series The Punisher has started filming. We’ve already seen Jon Bernthal as Franck Castle in the second season of Daredevil, but the iconic Marvel character will get his own show sometime in the near future.

Bernthal has been spotted with quite the beard on the streets of New York filming some early scenes from the Netflix-based project. While the photos aren’t too exciting – Bernthal can just be seen carrying a bag – they do give us an idea of how his character of Frank Castle will look in the upcoming 10-part series.

The Punisher Series Casts Ben Barnes, Possibly in the Role of Bobby Saint

Like anyone invested in the Marvel shows on Netflix, I am super excited for the upcoming Punisher series. Initially watching Daredevil Season 2, I found Frank Castle’s exit from the season rather lackluster. I was looking forward to Daredevil/Punisher fighting the bad guys and blowing everyone’s minds with their fighting prowess. Alas, I had to remind myself that it is a Daredevil series, not a Punisher show. But can you blame me? Jon Bernthal played the role of Frank Castle to perfection.

With the recent announcement of an upcoming Punisher series, hopefully all of my expectations will be fulfilled. The series is reportedly slated to hit Netflix in November of 2017 and casting has begun. It appears that the villain of the show has been cast.

TVLine got the exclusive on the casting. Here is what they had to say:

Ben Barnes joins The Punisher as a series regular

It looks like casting is underway on Netflix’s latest Marvel project, with TV Line reporting that Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to appear alongside Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle as a series regular in The Punisher.

Although character details are being kept under wraps, it is rumoured that Barnes will be playing the villain Bobby Saint, the son of mob boss Howard Saint. Both characters were created for the 2004 movie starring Thomas Jane, with James Carpinello playing Bobby and John Travolta as Howard.

It would surely be a huge surprise if Marvel used a character created for a movie over the many possible comic book villains at their disposal, so I’d suggest taking that rumour with a pinch of salt…

Marvel's The Punisher: Ben Barnes Joins The Netflix Series In Villain Role

Marvel's Netflix series certainly have a lot going for them. While it'd be easy for the shows to be overly-dark, bland, and violent for the sake of violence, there is a real heart to each and every one of them. The characters in these shows aren't just characters. They're not just plot devices. They're not chess pieces on a board moved around in order to lead to the next big tentpole character. No, they've living, breathing entities. This is the case for Daredevil, and this is the case for Jessica Jones.

While Season 2 of Daredevil had a lot of strong points to it, one of the big standouts was Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher.  This anti-hero had been tackled on three different occasions up until that point -- all of them unsuccessfully. While he was a favorite among fans, for one reason or another, no one could seem to get him right.

Marvel And Netflix's The Punisher Casts Chronicles Of Narnia's Ben Barnes As Series Regular

TV Line has broken our first bit of casting news for Marvel and Netflix's planned Daredevil spin-off, which will continue the bloody exploits of The Punisher. According to them, Ben Barnes (Westworld, Dorian Gray, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to star opposite Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle. We don't know for certain who he'll be playing, but TV Line has heard it'll be Bobby Saint, who is not actually a Marvel Comics character and was introduced in 2004's The Punisher as the son of John Travolta's Howard Saint. This seems like an unusual move, as there are lots of great Punisher villains that could be utilized ahead of a minor thug created for a 12 year-old movie. Anyway, we'll see if this turns out to be the case. In the meantime, let us know what you think in the usual place.

TriStar, eOne, Mark Gordon journey to 'Narnia'
Eleven years after Disney and Walden Media launched The Chronicles Of Narnia franchise in theatres, a new jigsaw of partners has come together to adapt the fourth book in C S Lewis’ fantasy classic.

Sony’s TriStar Pictures label has teamed up with The Mark Gordon Company, The C.S. Lewis Company and ambitious eOne on The Silver Chair, which TriStar, The Mark Gordon Company and eOne will finance.

The parties did not reveal the precise distribution strategy on Tuesday, however the elements raise the prospect of a desirable tentpole presenting itself to international buyers.

Sony and eOne will handle distribution. Screen understands TriStar will release the film in the Us, while eOne would appear likely to release the fantasy in Canada and could also handle in other markets where it distributes directly, namely the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Spain and Benelux.

Sierra/Affinity has a deal to sell territories outside these markets on films produced and acquired
