105 people were invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to become voting members today. Among those were actors Sacha Baron Cohen, Marion Cotillard, Allison Janney, Cody Diablo and Jet Li.

“These individuals are all incredibly talented and a credit to the world of filmmaking,” said Academy President Sid Ganis in a statement. “They exemplify the high standards of the Academy and I welcome each and every one of them to our ranks.”

Membership of the Academy is just under 6,000 and only a certain amount are invited each year. Not every invitation is accepted, but for those who do accept, a welcome reception for them will be held in September. The full list of 105 invitees is below.
