Gerard Butler and Robbie Coltrane invited to join film Academy 2011
Each year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences extends invitations to join the organization to artists (and executives) who they feel have distinguished themselves in their contributions to theatrical motion pictures.
“These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today,” said Academy President Tom Sherak. “Their talent and creativity have entertained moviegoers around the world, and I welcome each of them to our ranks.”
The voting membership has held steady at just under 6,000 members since 2003 and this year is inviting 178 new members.
This year, Gerard Butler and Robbie Coltrane are amongst the actors who have been invited to join.
