Lupita Nyong’o Invited To Join Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences
Lupita Nyong’o is on a serious career high since winning her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The “12 Years A Slave” star, who looks fabulous in her Lancome ad (and just about everything else), was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences as a member. The elite Academy extended the invitation this year to 270 other actors, filmmakers and Hollywood heavyweights, including Chris Rock and Pharrell Williams. Although the Academy membership’s benefits aren’t disclosed publicly, the fact that anyone gets invited to become a member is a pretty big deal.
Maybe this means more diversity in films being represented at the Oscars? Only time will tell.
