    Why did they award Darryl F. Zanuck the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award three times (1938, 1945, & 1951)? Isn’t that a one and done honorary award?

    For the first 15 or so years, it was given for the best producer of the
    specific year. It didn’t become a career award until later. It shifted
    around the time that producers started getting the BP Oscar (before then
    it went to the studio).

    If it were done the old way, Megan Ellison (Her, American Hustle) might have won this year.
