Governors Award photos: Steve Martin, Angelina Jolie, Angela Lansbury and Piero Tosi receive honorary Oscars
Check out photos of some of the 500 guests here.
Jolie -- a previous Academy Award winner for "Girl, Interrupted" -- received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her public service around the world. The other three received the honorary Oscars for their careers in the film industry. Although Lansbury and Tosi have both been nominated (and Martin has hosted the telecast), none of these three have received Academy Awards during their careers.
Steve Martin actually said he "thought maybe they needed a favor or wanted me to introduce somebody" when he got the call informing him of the honorary award.
Although not broadcast on television, clips from the private event may be shown during the March 2 telecast of the Academy Awards.
