July 08, 2009|Susan King

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that its annual branch elections of governors have resulted in the reelection of nine incumbents, the selection of four new governors and the return of one -- Tom Hanks -- after taking a year off. And in an academy first, there will be a runoff for governor of the directors branch between candidates Gilbert Cates and Edward Zwick.

New to the academy Board are James D. Bissell, art directors branch; Lynne Littman, documentary; Robert G. Friedman, public relations; and Bill Kroyer, short films and feature animation. Hanks returns to the board representing the actors branch.

Incumbent governors returning include Caleb Deschanel, cinematographers branch; Bruce Broughton, music; and James L. Brooks, writers.
