The duo who snagged an Oscar for their theme in James Bond early this year, Billie Eilish and Finneas, have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. 

The list of 397 people attending the Academy this year was released on Tuesday. It includes personalities across the entertainment industry – actors, directors, musicians, producers, film editors, and more. 

Eilish and Finneas were in the lead in the music category of invitees after they earned the Oscar for Best Original Song for “No Time to Die.” The win made Eilish the youngest person to snag the “triple crown” of film music with “No Time to Die”: an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe.

In the music industry, composers Hesham Nazih, Ariel Rose Marx, Jacobo Lieberman, Nathan Johnson, Natalie Holt, Leo Heiblum, Lili Hadyn, and Amie Doherty are also invited to participate in the Academy. 

Meanwhile, other individuals from other categories count actors Troy Kotsur (CODA), Jamie Dornan (Belfast), Arian DeBose (West Side Story), and Anya Taylor-Joy (Last Night in Soho), writer-directors Sian Harries Heder (CODA) and Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car). 

Eilish made history as the youngest headliner at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

“As ever, Billie’s greatest strength has been embracing the road less well-trodden and bringing the weirdness into the mainstream, not watering it down for the general public,” said Thomas Smith of NME, giving a four-star review of her Pyramid Stage performance. 

“Tonight’s show felt like proof that the future is here, and Glastonbury’s future remains rock-solid for the next half-century if they continue to trust their guts and push things forward.” 

Ahead of the performance, Eilish was interviewed by NME for the cover story last week, admitting that she feels “so honored to be a part of” the festival.
