Lauren Bacall Gets her Oscar

OK, so it’s an honorary Oscar, but still....

Lauren Bacall, a Best Supporting Actress nominee for The Mirror Has Two Faces, will be among those presented with honorary Oscars at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ inaugural Governors Awards event on Nov. 14.

Producer-executive John Calley (The Remains of the Day, The Da Vinci Code), producer-director Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors), and cinematographer Gordon Willis (The Godfather franchise) have been named as recipients of honorary Oscars as well.

For the first time, the honorary awards will be handed out at the November event and just acknowledged during next March’s Oscar live telecast.
