Boone Isaacs re-elected president of film academy
August 07, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Recognized as a trailblazer during her first term as film academy president, marketing executive Cheryl Boone Isaacs has been re-elected for another year.

Film academy governors elected new officers late Tuesday.

Boone Isaacs is the first black female president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and only the third woman to serve as president in the organization’s 87-year history. Academy officers may serve up to four consecutive one-year terms.

Boone Isaacs was inducted into the NAACP’s Hall of Fame and received Essence magazine’s Trailblazer award this year. She has been an academy member for 22 years.
