    How exactly the academy works? Because are you telling me that Betty White wasn’t a member of the academy, after all these years? And Viola Davia who has been nominated before wasn’t either?

    The Academy is now letting in everyone. Don’t know why they make an announcement. It’s not that big a deal when anyone can basically get in.

    Well, that means that people from Baywatch and Fast & Furious are going to decide who gets to be nominated for acting. Great job Academy, you did it again!
