Cheryl Boone IsaacsIn a move that surprised no one, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ board of directors has reelected Cheryl Boone Isaacs as president for a second one-year term. She can serve up to four terms.

In addition, the board elected Jeffrey Kurland, from the Academy’s costume designers branch, as first vice president, replacing John Lasseter, who termed out after nine years. Leonard Engelman from the makeup and hairstylists branch and John Bailey from cinematographers were elected vice presidents—a second term for Engelman but a first for Bailey. Dick Cook from the executives branch was reelected treasurer, and Brill Kroyer from animation was tapped as secretary for the first time.

The organization’s first African-American president, Boone Isaacs has served 22 years as a governor representing the public relations branch. Over the next year, she’ll work with Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron on the awards show, including selecting the host, and continue to lead the board as it solidifies plans for its $300 million Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

She also heads CBI Entertprises and has consulted on the marketing for such films as “The Call,” “The Artist,” “The King’s Speech,” “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” “Spider-Man 2” and “Tupac: Resurrection.” She also held executive marketing and publicity roles at New Line and Paramount.
