Last night marked the 11th Annual Governors Awards presentation, that took place in The Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood, CA.
The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented Honorary Awards in a form of Oscar statuettes to actor Wes Studi, director Lina Wertmüller, director David Lynch and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to actor Geena Davis.
The Governors Award is an annual event celebrating awards conferred by the Academy’s Board of Governors, which include the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and the Honorary Award. Each summer the board announces the recipients and later in November they’re honored at a dinner gala. Event highlights are then incorporated into the year’s Academy Awards show.
