Academy’s New Casting Directors Branch Elects Three Governors


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ newly created casting directors branch has elected three members to serve on the Academy board of governors.

The first-time governors are David Rubin, who is elected to a three-year term; Bernie Telsey, who is elected to a two-year term, and Lora Kennedy, who is elected to a one-year term.

The Academy’s 17 branches are each represented by three governors, who may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms. The addition of the casting directors branch was approved by the board in July.

“The addition of these exceptional professionals to our board is another positive step toward making our organization more inclusive and more reflective of the broader industry,” Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said. “We welcome them, their ideas and their insights wholeheartedly.”
