The Motion Picture Academy has great news.
The postponed Governor’s Awards will kick off Oscar weekend on March 25th. The awards– Lifetime honors– will go to Samuel L. Jackson, Liv Ullmann, Elaine May, and Danny Glover. Glover will get the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.
Jennifer Fox is producing the scaled back event at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland in Hollywood.
This is the perfect solution to when to have this dinner. And maybe it will become a tradition. The Honorary Award, an Oscar statuette, is given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”
The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, also an Oscar statuette, is given “to an individual in the motion picture arts and sciences whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”
The Oscars air March 27th on ABC.
