Previously, Sherak served as treasurer of the Academy, and has started his eighth year as a governor representing the Executives Branch.
Joining the wave of good Academy news, Sid Ganis, the Public Relations Branch governor and past Academy president, was elected first vice president. James L. Brooks and Phil Robinson, both of the Writers Branch, were elected to vice president posts, with Robinson being reelected. It's Brooks first election to a post.
Annette Bening gets post
Actress Annette Bening, wife of Actor Warren Beatty, was elected to the post of secretary. It's her first Academy-elected position.
Perhaps Bening will be Academy President one day?
Tom Sherak paid his dues
The reelection to AMPAS as President is a complement to Tom Sherak and his long standing relationships in the Academy and in Hollywood. For 40 years Sherak has been a marketing, distribution and production executive, and currently is a consultant to Marvel Studios and Relativity Media.
