Matthew McConaughey’s been picking up awards buzz for his supporting role in Magic Mike, and today, AMPAS invited the never-nominated actor to become an official Oscar voter. 175 other industry figures were on the invitation list, including recent winners like Octavia Spencer and Jean Dujardin, character actors better known for their TV work like Simon Baker and S. Epatha Merkerson, and directors like Terrence Malick and Wong Kar Wai. (It took them this long to get to Malick and Wong Kar-Wai? Yikes!)
