Who's Going to Be the Next President of the Motion Picture Academy

Barring a surprise, the job will probably go to either Lionsgate co-chairman Rob Friedman or public relations executive Cheryl Boone Isaacs. The latter would be the third woman and first African-American president in Academy history.
