The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has issued 928 invitations to new members—a record-breaking amount. In a conscious effort to broaden the prestigious group to include more women, people of color and international filmmakers, this number is higher than the 774 invitations sent in 2017, 683 in 2016, and 322 in 2015.

If all invites are accepted, 49 percent of the class of 2018 will be female, and it will bring the overall percentage of women in the Academy up to 31 percent. Additionally, new members of color make up 38 percent of the class, bringing up the overall percentage in the Academy to 16 percent.
