Local Oscar flavor

When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences added 276 members earlier this week, it made the Oscar voting pool younger, more diverse, and just a scooch more Minnesota-centric. Minneapolis native Kimberly Elise (“Beloved,” “The Manchurian Candidate”) was one of just 22 inductees in the acting category, an honor her father, Marvin Trammel, called “very significant.” Prince (“Purple Rain,” “Happy Feet”) was in the group of 10 new musicians. Before expanding its ranks the Academy was nearly 94 percent Caucasian and 77 percent male. Move over, Coen brothers.
