Tom Sherak re-elected Academy president – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For a third consecutiver term, Tom Sherak has been re-elected president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The organization’s board of governors approved the move Tuesday night, THR reports. As an officer of the Academy, Sherak can serve up to four consecutive terms in office.

During the Tuesday meetings, Hawk Koch was elected first vice president, joining Robert Rehme (executives branch) and Phil Robinson (writers branch). Pixar mastermind John Lasseter was elected treasurer, while Annette Bening was re-elected secretary.

The trade points out that Sherak has been “instrumental” in keeping the Oscar telecast in the annual awards race spotlight. His most recent decision was to eliminate the mandatory inclusion of 10 Best Picture nominees, making for a more fluid awards race.
