Thompson on Hollywood
Let's face it. Most of the Hollywood veterans who serve on the Motion Picture Academy board of governors, while august and admirable, are older males. While documentarian/provocateur Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine) is no spring chicken, in the world of the Academy, being in your 50s counts as young. And fellow Oscar-winners Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and editor Anne Coates (Lawrence of Arabia) are women to boot. The Academy recently elected the three first-time Academy governors, along with nine incumbents and three filmmakers returning after a hiatus.

The reelected governors are Curt Behlmer, Sound Branch; Rosemary Brandenburg, Art Directors; Richard Edlund, Visual Effects; Leonard Engelman, Makeup Artists and Hairstylists; Charles Fox, Music; Jim Gianopulos, Executives; Hawk Koch, Producers; Marvin Levy, Public Relations; and Frank Pierson, Writers.

Returning to the board after a hiatus are John Bailey, Cinematographers; Ed Begley, Jr., Actors; and Jon Bloom, Short Films and Feature Animation. Bailey previously served on the board from 1996 to 2002; Begley and Bloom both were governors from 2000 to 2009. Governors who were not up for reelection and who continue on the Board are Annette Bening and Tom Hanks, Actors Branch; Jim Bissell and Jeffrey Kurland, Art Directors; Caleb Deschanel and Owen Roizman, Cinematographers; Martha Coolidge and Edward Zwick, Directors; Rob Epstein and Lynne Littman, Documentary; Robert Rehme and Tom Sherak, Executives; Donn Cambern and Mark Goldblatt, Film Editors; Bruce Broughton and Arthur Hamilton, Music; Mark Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy, Producers; Robert G. Friedman and Sid Ganis, Public Relations; Bill Kroyer and John Lasseter, Short Films and Feature Animation; Don Hall and Kevin O’Connell, Sound; Craig Barron and Bill Taylor, Visual Effects; and James L. Brooks and Phil Robinson, Writers.

    Soccer is my favorite sport

    Sorry for maybe off comment but some more history:

    The modern rules of football are based on the mid-19th century efforts to standardise the widely varying forms of football played at the public schools of England.
    The Cambridge Rules, first drawn up at Cambridge University in 1848, were particularly influential in the development of subsequent codes, including association
    football. The Cambridge Rules were written at Trinity College, Cambridge, at a meeting attended by representatives from Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Winchester and
    Shrewsbury schools. They were not universally adopted. During the 1850s, many clubs unconnected to schools or universities were formed throughout the
    English-speaking world, to play various forms of football. Some came up with their own distinct codes of rules, most notably the Sheffield Football Club,
    formed by former public school pupils in 1857, which led to formation of a Sheffield FA in 1867. In 1862, John Charles
    Thring of Uppingham School also devised an influential set of rules
