The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced changes to the 2021 membership review process.  To ensure the support all Academy members, this year's growth in membership will be limited to roughly half that of recent years. 

This modification will enable steady future growth and allow the Academy to continue serving its membership in a more personal manner.  Ahead of this change, the Academy's Board of Governors voted on branch-specific guidelines to be applied in determining this year's new membership invitees.  Oscar® winners and nominees will be considered without limitation by applicable branches.

The Academy is committed to advancing its Aperture 2025 initiative, furthering goals to increase equity and inclusion in the stories told through film, elevate different voices within Academy leadership, and provide opportunities to amplify these voices across multiple sectors in the industry.
