Billie Eilish and Finneas have both been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, according to a press release from the organization. They’re part of a nearly 400-strong group invited to join the Academy this year, along with Ariana DuBose, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Troy Kotsur. See the full list of directors, cinematographers, and other invitees via Deadline.
Eilish and Finneas won a Best Original Song Oscar this year for their “No Time to Die,” the theme for the James Bond film installment of the same name. The pair released the song in early 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the movie’s release until October 2021. They performed “No Time to Die” at the 2022 award ceremony in March. The pair more recently wrote “Nobody Like U” for Disney’s Turning Red.
