Movie Academy Re-Ups CEO Bill Kramer’s Contract Through 2028 Oscars

The board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Monday that it has renewed the contract of CEO Bill Kramer through July 2028. His deal wasn’t scheduled to be up for renewal until 2025.

Kramer was the director and president of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures when he was elected AMPAS CEO in June 2022, replacing Dawn Hudson.

The news comes as he and the Academy launched Academy100, a $500 million “global revenue diversification and outreach campaign” that will lead up to the 100th Oscars ceremony — which Kramer will now be around to oversee.

“Bill is a dynamic and transformational leader, and the board of governors agrees he is the ideal person to continue to broaden the Academy’s reach and impact on our international film community and successfully guide the organization into our next 100 years,” Academy president Janet Yang said today in a release announcing the renewal.

The Academy said Kramer will continue to oversee all aspects of the Academy and its more than 700 employees in Los Angeles, New York and London, in addition to its global membership, awards programs, education and emerging talent initiatives, collection and preservation initiatives, and its screenings and public programs.

During Kramer’s tenure so far, he has significant strategic changes by aligning all arms of the organization, including the Academy Foundation and Academy Museum.
