As reported by Variety, the Academy has chosen who will get honorary awards next year. Jackson is one of those honored. He will receive the Governor’s Awards for Lifetime Achievement in the Film Industry. He is one of the four actors who will be honored: Danny Glover will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, while Liv Ullmann and Elaine May will also be honored.
“We are delighted to present this year’s Governors Awards to four laureates who have had a profound impact on film and society,” Academy President David Rubin said in a statement. “Sam Jackson is a cultural icon whose dynamic work has resonated across genres, generations and audiences around the world, while Elaine May’s bold and uncompromising approach to filmmaking, in as a writer, director and actress, resonates more than ever with moviegoers. Liv Ullmann’s bravery and emotional transparency provided audiences with deeply touching on-screen portrayals, and Danny Glover’s decades-long advocacy for justice and human rights reflects his dedication to recognizing our shared humanity at screen and off.
