Doesn't the DGA already have a category for Movies made for television?

The list of new Academy members for 2019 features some interesting names. Just picking the names that stand out to me from the list, it was nice to see Claire Bloom and Kenneth Cranham among the actors, along with Jean-Louis Trintingant and Giancarlo Giannini. In other disciplines Hong Kyung-pyo, the cinematographer of Burning and Kim Hyun, the Editor of Burning are both made members. Also Julio Suárez, the Costume Designer of Lucrecia Martel's more recent films (The Holy Girl, The Headless Woman and Zama). Annie Lennox is invited in the Musicians category.

Interestingly amongst the directors Matteo Garrone of Gomorrah and Alison Maclean stand out (I'd love to see a Blu-ray edition of her debut film Crush!), but further down in the "Short Films and Feature Animation" category both Mamoru Oshii (director of the 1995 Ghost In The Shell,the 2004 sequel Innocence and Angel's Egg) and Katsuhiro Otomo (director of Akira and Steamboy) get invited to the Academy, though they both have experience directing live action films as well. And whilst Andrew Bujalski directs his films, he has been invited under the "Writers" branch instead! Along with Anna Biller, and Andrew Haigh. And Agnès Jaoui! And Cédric Klapisch! I guess that being invited under the Writer's branch is to emphasise the personal touches the writer-director brings to each of their films?

I believe the individual branches choose who to invite, so it’s just a case of the writers having better taste / actually knowing who these people are

How has it taken Trintingant this long to be invited?

The writing branch has been one of the few lights in terms of nominees, but directing hasn't been too far off as well.

Does anyone know what's going on with Awards Watch Forum? The boards have been locked since at least yesterday and registration is also disabled.
