David Rubin, veteran casting director and current president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, has been re-elected to a third term by the organization’s Board of Governors.
Rubin begins his ninth year as a governor, representing the casting directors branch. Some of his most notable credits include the best picture winner “The English Patient” (1996), “Men in Black” (1997) and “The Talented Mr. Ripley” (1999).
Joining the board of governors for the first time is Oscar-winning producer Donna Gigliotti (“Shakespeare in Love”), Oscar-nominated producer David Linde (“Arrival”), producer DeVon Franklin (“Breakthrough”) and producer Jennifer Todd (“Memento”).
Screenwriter Larry Karaszewski (“Ed Wood”), BAFTA-nominated costume designer Isis Mussenden (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”), veteran production designer Wynn P. Thomas (“Da 5 Bloods”) and producer Janet Yang (“The People vs. Larry Flynt”) were all re-elected as officers.
Academy board members can serve up to two three-year terms, followed by at least a two-year hiatus, after which they may serve up to two additional three-year terms. Officers serve one-year terms, with a maximum of four consecutive years in any one office.
The number of officer positions increased to nine this year, with the addition of the Equity and Inclusion Committee and the separation of Membership and Governance into two committees.
