France’s Oscar committee has announced a major decision in terms of increasing the size and term of members in the group of selection personnels. The decision comes after the Palme d’Or-winning movie Anatomy of a Fall was snubbed at the Oscars in 2023. The announcement stated that the committee will have 11 members and five alternatives from seven members currently on the team. 

A press release shared by the committee claimed that the changes made in the team are to “promote the collegiality of the debates, the diversity of points of view and the secret nature of the vote of each member.” 

Backlash faced by France’s Oscar committee

France's Oscar committee faced a fair amount of backlash last year ahead of the big night for submitting The Taste of Things to the festival instead of Anatomy of a Fall, directed by Justin Triet. While the Tran Anh Hung directorial failed to grab a spot in the list of nominations, the latter went on to win the Academy Award for Best Screenplay amongst the other contenders, including Oppenheimer, Maestro, and Poor Things. 

The movie also received nominations in the categories of Best Picture, Best Actress, and Film Editing. 

In the statement released by the chairman of the Oscar committee, Oliver Henrard shared, “These three amendments will help to strengthen the independence of the commission, both with regard to public authorities and professional interests.”
