    Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham is another combo that could happen, especially with the huge success of the Fleetwood Mac tour this year.  I like the idea of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards….how did Led Zeppelin get honored before them?  I really hate how political this whole thing is, all depending on who the board deems is right.  They do have to have marquee names for television ratings.

    As much as I would love to see Gene Hackman get recognized, I doubt it will happen.  I don’t think he’s made a public appearance in years, right?  I’d say he is probably the most deserving American actor not yet honored, without a doubt.  Harrison Ford will definitely get it, and Michael Douglas and Al Pacino too.  There are some great directors on that list, but of course these sort of things always go with the most commercial first, i.e. Steven Spielberg and then Martin Scorsese.  Perhaps George Lucas could be honored here as well?  The Kennedy Center isn’t really honoring who has been most significant for cinema as an artform, from the list above probably Francis Ford Coppola.

    Also, I wonder if the Kennedy Center would ever honor Harvey Weinstein.  He has been hugely important for the film industry.  That would be really interesting if they chose a producer/mogul figure.  Harvey does have the political connections…

    Maybe, just maybe, it’s because Led Zeppelin is fucking awesome and one of the best rock bands ever (and maybe better than the Stones even, maybe).

    ^^ It was definitely an inspired move on the part of the Kennedy Center.  But the Stones date a little earlier, are still together, and are marquee names that could begin or close the telecast.  That’s why I said what I said, it’s kind of surprising they haven’t been chosen yet.  I would think of them before Led Zeppelin, especially with their strong musical voice in the America of the late 60s and 70s.  I guess it is what happens for these things.  There’s no queue to get honored, really, and no seniority vote.  I mean, it’s not the best example, but it is an extreme one: Tom Hanks winning the AFI award in his 40s at the height of his popularity, when great American actors remain unhonored, like Gene Hackman.  Steven Spielberg also winning in his 40s, when Francis Ford Coppola (his 70s run is one of the greatest decades ever by a single director in American cinema) and even Oliver Stone (who Spielberg acknowledged was a better director than him) haven’t been recognized.

    I always enjoy this speculation, and I’m going with Burt Bacharach, Carole King, Tom Hanks (token “younger” achiever), Rita Moreno, and Betty White again. I really want the first three and Moreno and White are on shakier ground, Moreno because she’s already getting the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award this year (although I’d love to see the double) and White because Betty-mania is fading. Truly, I think that anyone 80+ from the “television performers” category, in particular, Asner, Caesar, Leachman, Lear, Newhart, or Reiner, would be a real treat, especially since there hasn’t really been someone primarily known for their humor honored since Brooks 4 years ago. 70-somethings Alda, Moore, Tomlin, and Tyson would also be great tributes.

    Given what a joke that has become of The Kennedy Center Honors, perhaps among the 2013 honorees will be Jay Leno.

    So I was thinking about it and these would be great additions/inductees:

    1) Jerry Lewis (This man not only is one of the funniest people around and has made fans of all ages but is probably one of the most admirable people out there for what he has done with the telethon (which they took him off of unfairly I might add)
    2) Gladys Knight (a legend that is long overdue)
    3) Betty White (a legend and everyone loves her)
    4) Cicely Tyson (a legend that is long overdue)
    5) Fats Domino (how he has not been inducted/honored yet is beyond me)
