Oscars announce new inclusion initatives


AMPAS announced a bunch of new phases regarding its Academy Aperture 2035 equity and inclusion initative.

-- Best Picture will go back to having 10 nominees starting with the 2021 calendar year.
-- New representation and inclusion standards in regards to films being eligible for Oscar consideration will be announced by the end of July. Those rules go into effect next year.
-- Films will be posted on the Academy's streaming website for members all year round, ensuring all eligible films are seen.
-- All Board of Governor members must go through unconscious bias training. Governors can now only serve two three-year terms before going on a mandatory two-year hiatus before they are allowed to serve again. A lifetime limit of 12 years was added.
-- The Academy will have a new Office of Representation, Inclusion and Equity to ensure these practices are implemented and held to accountability.
-- New member invitations will be announced next month.
