HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Emma Stone became the first ever actress of Native Hawaiian descent to become a voter of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which hands out the annual Oscars.
The Academy announced its new invitations Friday, potentially adding 322 names to the voter list.
Becoming an Oscar voter is not automatic for Hollywood actors, directors, producers and others involved in film-making. Voters have to be invited and invitees must accept.
Stone, many will recall, played Stephanie Ng, the quarter Native Hawaiian love interest of Bradley Cooper in the Sony Pictures film, “Aloha.”
The Adobo Chronicles® congratulates Stone as well as fellow invitee Ronaldo Del Carmen (Up,” “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”) for this great honor. Del Carmen is Filipino and co-director of the new Disney animation film “Inside Out.”
