Kristen Stewart will officially get to cast a ballot at next year’s Oscars. The actress was one of 774 people invited on Wednesday to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Each year, the Academy unveils a large selection of invitees working in various branches of the film industry to become members of the prestigious organization. This year’s list comprises of 39 percent women and 30 percent people of color, marking an increase in diversity from past years. The Academy voters, which now tallies around 8,000, are made up of actors, actresses, directors, producers, cinematographers, editors and many more figures in the movie industry. Each member gets to cast a vote in the category to which they belong.

Stewart has yet to be nominated for an Oscar, but she presented at the awards show earlier this year. She also received many acting accolades for her performance in 2015’s Clouds of Sils Maria. The role won her the title of Best Supporting Actress from several film critics associations, as well as a Cesar Award, the French equivalent of an Oscar.

Some of this year’s other notable invitees include Justin Timberlake, Chris Evans, Gal Gadot, Jon Hamm, Dwayne Johnson, Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Margot Robbie, Channing Tatum, Shailene Woodley, Chris Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, Anna Faris, Armie Hammer, Leslie Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Sienna Miller and Rebel Wilson. And as Gossip Cop reported, 95-year-old Betty White is this year’s oldest Motion Picture Academy invitee. The 2018 Oscars, which will once again be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, are scheduled to air next March.
