The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences on Monday invited Abigail Breslin, Andrew Braugher, Alison Brie, Hannibal Buress, Emilia Clarke and Dave Chappelle to join its membership.

Also among the 928 artists asked to join the body that votes on the Oscars honoring excellence in film are Naveen Andrews, Gemma Arterton, Timothee Chalamet, Olivia Colman, Kim Dickens, Taye Diggs, Omar Epps, Eva Green, Jennifer Grey, Regina Hall, Lena Headey, Lily James, Ken Jeong, Rashida Jones, Toby Jones, Mindy Kaling, Daniel Kaluuya, Diane Kruger, Adrian Lester, Blake Lively, Derek Luke, Audra McDonald, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Kal Penn, Mekhi Phifer, Daisy Ridley, Amy Schumer, Amber Tamblyn, Liv Tyler, Blair Underwood, Benedict Wong and Evan Rachel Wood.

Forty-nine percent of the 2018 invitees are female and 38 percent are people of color, the academy said.

The academy is actively trying to be more inclusive since it was criticized for having no people of color among its acting nominees at the 2015 and 2016 Oscars.
