“We are deeply grateful to Julia, Miky, Steve and Tilda, at Rolex, as well as our co-chairs and the organizing committee for making our second annual gala an evening to remember.”
The Academy Museum opened its doors last year just four days after the first gala, sparking a storm of controversy over its political orientation.
Critics have criticized the museum for emphasizing the contributions of various minorities to the American film industry while ignoring the white Jewish immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe who played a major role in the creation of Hollywood.
The museum responded to the blowback by announcing in March that it will add a permanent exhibit highlighting the Jewish history of the film industry.
