Ten random things: June 25

Ten people invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2010 and the branches in which they are distinguished:

  1. Shane Hurlbut (cinematographer)
  2. Juan Jose Campanella (director)
  3. T Bone Burnett (music)
  4. Tom Myers (sound)
  5. Dave Warren (art director)
  6. Peter Riegert (actor)
  7. Andrew Karpen (executive)
  8. Peter de Seve (animator)
  9. Suzanne M. Cole (public relations)
  10. Tia Lessin (documentary)

I'm particularly pleased to see an invitation extended to Peter Riegert; he's long been one of my favorite character actors. It's a little odd he was only invited to join this year; he's been in the biz for more than 30 years, and his Oscar nomination (for Live Action Short Film) was all the way back in 2000. Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana, another invitee this year, wasn't even born when Riegert made his first movie, and has never been nominated for anything more prestigious than an MTV Movie Award. The full list of invitees can be found here.
