Lopez handed Film Academy invite
Jennifer Lopez, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lucy Liu have received one of the most exclusive invitations in Hollywood.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Friday that it has invited them, and 273 others, to join its ranks.
Other invitees include Jason Bateman, Lena Dunham, Rosario Dawson, "Machete" star Danny Trejo, "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig and "Before Midnight" writer-star Julie Delpy.
All 16 branches of the film academy extended invitations to new members, from hairstylists and sound engineers to producers and publicists.
Those who accept the invitations will be able to vote on the recipients of the next Academy Awards, set for March 2, 2014.
