Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman Invited to Join the Academy
You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when you receive a formal invitation into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Several actors, directors, producers, and others have been sent invites to the exclusive “club,” which only allows 6000 members at any given time.

Some of our favorite actors (right now anyway) were lucky enough to get invited, like Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams, and Seth Rogen.

In fact, his Pineapple Express co-star James Franco also got an invite, proving a movie primarily about an illegal substance is considered art in this town!

Head of the Academy Sid Ganis said in a statement "These filmmakers have, over the course of their careers, captured the imagination of audiences around the world. It's this kind of talent and creativity that make up the Academy, and I welcome each of them to our ranks."

The new members will be honored at an invitation-only reception in Beverly Hills this September. Here are a list of the actor invitees:

Casey Affleck
Emily Blunt
Michael Cera
Viola Davis
James Franco
Brendan Gleeson
Anne Hathaway
Taraji P. Henson
Emile Hirsch
Hugh Jackman
Melissa Leo
Jane Lynch
Eddie Marsan
James McAvoy
Seth Rogen
Paul Rudd
Amy Ryan
