    This year, the academy announced the recipients of the Governors Awards way back in May with the ceremony taking place in late October.

    Who do you think should be singled out for the next honorary Oscars? Let us know your thoughts on your top picks for these kudos, including the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian award.

    Does anyone think Tim Burton could be a possibility? He is one of maybe 5 household name directors in the United States. He is one of the Top 20 highest grossing directors of all time domestically. He has a solid amount of critical hits like Ed Wood, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Sweeney Todd to support a win. He has been nominated for 2 Oscars for his animated work.

    I think the only thing holding him back his recent weak output. Maybe if he moves away from the blockbusters and makes a few more films like Frankenweenie and Big Eyes he will be taken seriously.

    They’ll get to him eventually.

    Ian Mckellen (a gay british icon. Robbed for Gods and Monsters)

    Fernanda Montenegro (let’s have a latin win. Gwyneth still needs to return her Oscar)

    Terry Gilliam (quite underappreciated for his fantasy and sci-fi work)

    Max Von Sydow and Liv Ullman.

    Seconded, though MVS is far more likely of the two because of his more significant activity in the US industry (have they ever given it to a foreign thespian that had little Hollywood participation?).

    I would love to see Peter Weir get it. He’s been nominated 6 times and has rarely ever made a bad movie.

    Claire Denis and Edward James Olmos would also be terrific choices that would also extend the theme of representation that the Honorary awards have embraced.
