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.
Other celebs include Russell Brand, Jesse Eisenberg, David Duchovny, Tea Leoni, Gerard Butler, Mila Kunis, Bradley Cooper, and Ellen Page.
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??
