"How can I ignore the fact that a few weeks ago the Academy expelled my husband, Roman Polanski, in an attempt to appease the zeitgeist - the very same Academy which in 2002 awarded him an Oscar for 'The Pianist'! A curious case of amnesia!" Seigner wrote in the column.
The Board of Governors of AMPAS had on May 1 voted to expel comedian Bill Cosby and Polanski, who have faced sexual harassment and rape charges for years, in accordance with their newly-commissioned Standards of Conduct.
Seigner was one of the 928 artistes invited by the Academy as a part of its bid to boost diversity.
"The Academy probably thinks I am enough of a spineless, social climbing actress that I would forget that I have been married for the past 29 years to one of the world's greatest directors," she said.
In the past, Polanski has admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old girl after plying her with champagne and pills in 1978 at actor Jack Nicholson's house.
