Three members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' newly created casting directors branch have been elected to the Board of Governors. The new governors are David Rubin ("Gravity," "Smurfs 2"), who will serve a three-year term; Bernie Telsey ("Friends with Kids"), who was elected to a two-year term; and Lora Kennedy ("Argo," "Man of Steel"), who will serve a one-year term. "The addition of these exceptional professionals to our board is another positive step toward making our organization more inclusive and more reflective of a broader industry," academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs said in a statement Monday.

If the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences takes up the challenge issued by David Macaray to have dual-category Oscars for drama and comedy/musicals ["Oscar Needs a Page From NFL's Playbook," Dec. 22], I hope someone will also consider adding a category for casting directors. While overlooked in the constant effort to market acting and directorial stars, this group is responsible for finding the specific talent and unusual traits that give so many movies their memorable texture and most remarkable moments.
