Internet reacts to Oscars membership invitation, RRR fans disappointed for excluding S.S. Rajamouli but celebrate Jr. NTR & Ram Charan’s invite, Austin Butler stans remember Elvis star’s “snubbed” moment, Bill Hader included & more

From RRR‘s Jr. NTR, Ram Charan to Oscars 2023’s snubbed talent like Elvis star Austin Butler – the Academy has offered 398 artists with voting membership to their prestigious award ceremony. The invitation to be a member of the Oscars mostly includes this year’s Academy Award nominees and winners. However, not all talent from the 95th Academy Awards received the invite with even names like RRR director S.S. Rajamouli excluded.

It’s a bittersweet moment for RRR fans as they celebrate Ram Charan and Jr. NTR’s inclusion in the Oscars voting membership. Other invitees from the global sensational film include Naatu Naatu song’s Oscar winner M. M. Keeravaani and lyricist Chandrabose and Cinematographer Senthil Kumar.

Surprisingly, S.S. Rajamouli was not on the invite list for Oscars membership. Though it is likely S.S. Rajamouli was not considered for the Oscars voting invite since the Bahubali filmmaker failed to land a nomination in the director’s category. Even so, both Jr. NTR and Ram Charan were not in the leading actor nominee so it remains unclear why the director – who played a pivotal role in RRR’s Oscar race campaign was snubbed from even a voting invite.

Even so, India’s south cinema had another reason to rejoice since veteran director Mani Ratnam was on the Academy invite list. Aside from the foreign talent, A few were surprised to learn Barry star Bill Hader had just landed his Academy invitation while the 45-year-old’s contribution to Hollywood has been plenty, especially through Saturday Night Live. Similarly, Nicholas Hoult‘s addition to the Academy members had some rejoicing since the actor was in the spotlight for losing the Superman: Legacy role audition.

The Elvis actor landing the Oscars membership has reopened old wounds for fans that are still hungover about Austin Butler’s snub at the 95th Academy Awards. Still, some have happiness in knowing the actor has received recognition while others argued he was owed an invite since he is a 2023 nominee for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role.

Other favorites such as NOPE’s Keke Palmer, EEAOO‘s Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu received praise online as well. In total, 9,375 Academy members will be voting for the 96th Oscars scheduled to happen on March 10, 2024. Several yet-to-be-released titles are already being predicted to be a contender for the 96th Academy like Oppenheimer, and DUNE PART TWO to name a few.
