    I don't know if she is the first minor to be a member, but how does this work?

    How does the MPAA feel about this? Does she have to have a parent or guardian present if she watches rated R films? What if...god forbid...an NC-17 film were to become "Oscar worthy"?

    They probably feel no different about it than they do about her appearing in a rated R movie, something she's done in the past.

    Haley Joel Osment is a member because of his Sixth Sense nom, right? And as I recall from the publicity at the time, he wasn't the first either.

    But I'd rather have them than some of the dinosaurs who make up the bulk of the Academy. I remember a couple years ago seeing an interview with James Garner in which he admitted to not watching films like Pulp Fiction when they're nominated.

    This may be Justin Timberlake's best chance at a nomination. [​IMG]

    Wasn't Jody Foster a member when she was underage as well?

    Wasn't Tatum O'Neal, too?

    Dakota's probably smarter and more cultured than a sizable number of the adults in the Academy, so I'm not that worried. But then, the Academy doesn't really matter, so I probably wouldn't be worried anyway.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like Dakota Fanning has been the same age for like 10 years.

    Every time I see her in a movie, she looks the same as she did in the last one.

    Maybe she's an alien or a robot (2 things Spieberg would love to do another movie about [​IMG])

    You beat me to it, except I was going to add Hilary Duff.
