Mark Goldblatt has won the runoff election to represent the Film Editors Branch on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) Board of Governors, the Academy announced on Monday.

Goldblatt had tied with Maryann Brandon in the original board election, resulting in the third runoff in the history of AMPAS board elections. All three have taken place in the last seven years.

Goldblatt formerly served as a governor of the branch and is returning to the board after a one-year hiatus.

His election completes the 54-person membership of the 2016-2017 board, which will meet for the first time on Tuesday night to select the Academy president.
