Russell Brand - Russell Brand, Bradley & Beyonce Invited To Join The Academy

Outrageous comedian Russell Brand, Bradley Cooper and Beyonce have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The trio of non-Oscar winners joins a class of 175 actors, moviemakers, executives and artists who will be added to the membership list in time to vote for the Academy Awards in 2012. A further three notables will become associate members - and will not be among those voting.
The invitees also include photojournalist/filmmaker Tim Hetherington, who was killed in action in Libya in April (11). Hetherington was nominated for a Best Documentary prize at the 2010 Oscars for his film Restrepo.
The tragic Brit becomes the first posthumous Academy invitee.
Other notable names on the list include Gerard Butler, Vincent Cassel, Harry Potter star Robbie Coltrane, Brand's Arthur co-star Jennifer Garner, Dominic Monaghan, Rooney Mara, Mila Kunis, newcomer Jennifer Lawrence, Nastassja Kinski and husband and wife David Duchovny and Tea Leoni.
Directors Susanne Bier, Neil Burger, Lisa Cholodenko and Tom Hooper have also been invited to join the exclusive Oscars club.
