Those elected to the board for the first time are:

Alfred Molina (Actors Branch)
Tom Duffield (Designers Branch)
Susanne Bier (Directors Branch)
Bonnie Arnold (Short Films and Feature Animation Branch)

Incumbent governors reelected include:

Bernard Telsey (Casting Directors Branch)

Returning after hiatus are:

A tie in the balloting between horror maestro Jason Blum and Oscars producer Jennifer Todd in the Producers Branch will necessitate a run-off election. Voting will begin Monday, June 18 and end Tuesday, June 19. The last run-off election took place in 2016 in the Film Editors Branch.

The Academy is made up of 17 branches, each represented by three governors who serve three-year terms and help set the organization’s strategic vision, among other duties. The new and returning members of the board will assume their post on July 1.
