Cheryl Boone Isaacs re-elected for second term as president of Motion Picture Academy

(August 7, 2014) Cheryl Boone Isaacs was re-elected president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Tuesday night, Aug. 5, by the organization's Board of Governors. The African American to serve in the post, she is beginning her second term as president and her 22nd year as a governor representing the Public Relations Branch.

Academy board members may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms, while officers serve one-year terms, with a maximum of four consecutive years in any one office.

Boone Isaacs currently heads her own firm, CBI Enterprises, Inc., where she has consulted on marketing efforts on such films as "The Call," "The Artist," "The King's Speech," "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," "Spider-Man 2" and "Tupac: Resurrection." Boone Isaacs previously served as president of theatrical marketing for New Line Cinema, where she oversaw numerous box office successes, including "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and "Rush Hour."

Prior to joining New Line in 1997, she was executive vice president of worldwide publicity for Paramount Pictures, where she orchestrated publicity campaigns for the Best Picture winners "Forrest Gump" and "Braveheart." This year, she was inducted into the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Hall of Fame, and received the African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) Horizon Award and the 2014 Trailblazer award from Essence magazine.

Best known as the organization behind the movie industry's most prestigious honor, the Oscar, the Academy encourages excellence in filmmaking through a range of coveted awards. While the Oscar statuette -- a symbol admired around the world -- acknowledges the very highest level of achievement, every form of Academy recognition, be it a certificate, plaque or other form of trophy, carries significance like none other in the world of movies.
