Why are the Academy members who vote on movies so old, where are new members hiding?
I really think it's time for The Academy of Motion Pictures should re do their members roster because at least most of the members are very old like Carl Reiner, Robert Cleary (LaBeau on Hogan's Heroes) and other old actors and entertainment types. Most of them are sleeping through the movies and then I heard they run all over the building bribing other members to vote for movies they slept through. Why are they getting away with it???????

I would think not everyone as old as Carl Reiner and Robert Cleary. But I don't know their ages, and these are also some of the other stars and people that in the movie business that are member of the Academy, Michael Douglas, Christopher Nolan, Julianne Moore, Eric Clapton, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Samuel Goldwyn, Jr, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Aniston, Will Smith and George Clooney. I think also stars and people in the movie business who win an Oscar is a member right away. But sometime the Academy will invite stars and people in the movie business to be a member. IF they think they are good enough to be a member.
Here goes two links on good info on the subject.

It's an old boys club for sure. I think a lot of the Oscars though is based on tradition, the big studio system, and they're unlikely to change the format.
