www.hollywoodnews.com: Cinematographer Richard P. Crudo, producer Gale Anne Hurd, composer David Newman and film editor Michael Tronick make up this year’s first-time electees to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors. In addition, seven incumbents were reelected and three other motion picture professionals will return to the Board after a time away.

The reelected governors are Craig Barron, Visual Effects; Annette Bening, Actors; Don Hall, Sound; Jeffrey Kurland, Art Directors; John Lasseter, Short Films and Feature Animation; Robert Rehme, Executives; and Phil Robinson, Writers.

Returning to the board after a hiatus are Michael Apted, Documentary; Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Public Relations; and Paul Mazursky, Directors. Apted previously served from 2002 to 2009. Isaacs served from 1988 to 1997 and again from 2000 to 2009. Mazursky was on the board from 1997 to 2000 and again from 2006 to 2009.

Fourteen of the Academy’s 15 branches are represented by three governors, who may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms. Terms are staggered so that each branch elects or reelects one governor each year. The Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch is represented by a single governor.
