The Academy Board of Governors confirmed Monday (May 13) the appointment of three new governors-at-large, DeVon Franklin (Executives Branch), Rodrigo García (Directors Branch), and Janet Yang (Producers Branch).
They will each serve a three-year term, beginning July 1. This furthers the Academy’s A2020 initiative, which seeks to support inclusion and increase representation within its membership and the greater film community.

“The Board looks forward to welcoming DeVon, Janet, and Rodrigo. They are each well-positioned to support our continuing global outreach efforts,” said Academy President John Bailey. “We are grateful to our three outgoing at-large governors, Gregory Nava, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, and Reginald Hudlin, for their dedicated service to the Academy over the last three years.”
In addition to the governors-at-large, the Academy’s 17 branches are each represented by three governors, who may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms. The Board of Governors sets the Academy’s strategic vision, preserves the organization’s financial health, and assures the fulfillment of its mission.
The Academy’s 2019-2020 Board of Governors will be announced in June.
