A wonderful and well-deserved honor for both Oprah and James!
This year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Board of Governors will honor Oprah Winfrey, James Earl Jones and makeup artist Dick Smith as well.
Oprah will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, which hasn't been awarded in three years, for "her extensive charitable, philanthropic, and educational efforts."
Congratulations to all three honorees!
