A few things I gleaned upon looking over the list of new Academy members, which you can read in full over at AwardsDaily:
Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki! That's how we do it!
Chantal Akerman! About fucking time.
Claire Denis! Ditto.
Jean-Claude Carriere! Ditto.
Diane Kurys! Ditto.
Thomas Vinterberg! The Celebration, obvs. Just not It's All About Love.
Rithy Panh! I'm all over that.
Rob Riggle! No rly, they rly just did that.
