Omotola Ekeinde; What I think About Joining the Oscars Academy

It is a privilege to be invited and admitted into the the Oscars Academy as a voting member.

Omotola Ekeinde noted that it was a privilege to be invited into the cademy as one of the voting members.

“It feels amazing to be invited to become a member of the academy and becoming a voting member,” the actress, producer and  United Nations ambassador said after her induction into the academy alongside 927 others.

In a bid to boost diversity, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde was announced as one of the new members invited to join the group behind the Oscars film awards.

The actress, alongside Nigerian filmmaker Femi Odugbemi [Battleground, Gidi Blues] are among the 928 people who were invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science.

Including  14-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis, 86-year-old Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina, and new members from 59 different countries. This year’s invitees marks the academy’s largest and most diverse class ever, topping last year’s 774 new members, which itself was a jump over the previous year’s 684 invitees.
