Getting invited to join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts is a pretty big deal.
And a list has revealed the recent celebs who have been asked to join the honorable Academy.
Even though Beyonce has only been in a handful of films, she was one of the 178 invitees on the list.
Academy President Tom Sherak says:
"These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today. Their talent and creativity have entertained moviegoers around the world, and I welcome each of them to our ranks."
Since 2003, there have been 6,000 members of The Academy - members who also vote for the Oscars. Very impressive! We'd love to catch a glimpse of Bey's Oscar voting ballot for 2012…wouldn't U??
