Donald Sutherland, Charles Burnett to Receive Honorary Oscars


The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are set to present Honorary Awards to writer-director Charles Burnett, cinematographer Owen Roizman, actor Donald Sutherland and director Agnès Varda.

The four Oscar statuettes will be presented at the Governors Awards on Nov. 11 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.

"This year's Governors Awards reflect the breadth of international, independent and mainstream filmmaking, and are tributes to four great artists whose work embodies the diversity of our shared humanity," the Academy's new president John Bailey said Wednesday in announcing the honors, which were voted on by the Academy's board on Sept. 5.

Sutherland's work is probably best known to the average moviegoer, even though he's never been Oscar-nominated. Born in Canada, the actor has appeared in more than 140 movies over six decades. Among the more prominent films in which he has appeared are MASH, Klute, Don't Look Now, The Day of the Locust, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Ordinary People. More recently, he has appeared as the dictatorial President Snow in the Hunger Games franchise.
