The Academy’s 17 branches are each represented by three governors, who may serve up to two three-year terms (consecutive or non-consecutive), followed by a two-year hiatus, after which eligibility renews for up to two additional three-year terms, for a lifetime maximum of 12 years. The Board of Governors sets the Academy’s strategic vision, preserves the organization’s financial health, and assures the fulfillment of its mission.
Incumbent governors reelected to the board:
Seven out of 12 governors elected for the first time are women, as are three out of four returning governors. Among the first-timers is Rita Wilson for the actors branch, while Oscar- and Emmy-winning director Susanne Bier returns for a new term in the directors branch, as does two-time Oscar show producer Jennifer Todd for the producers branch. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Monday announced its newly elected 2021–2022 Board of Governors.
With the election of Kim to the Marketing and PR branch, film company Participant now sports an impressive three members on the board including returnees Kounelias and Linde.
