Gael Garcia Bernal, Gregory Nava Among New Diversity Academy Appointees

In response to the growing calls for diversity among its members, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences named three new governors to its 51-member board.

Screenwriter Gregory Nava, who is of Mexican and Basque heritage, African-American director Reginald Hudlin, and Asian-American animator Jennifer Yuh Nelson were appointed after academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs promised to expand the group’s leadership earlier this year.
