    I know there is an Honorary Oscar thread but I thought I would draw attention to this and hopefully, maybe somebody with influence is reading it. It doesn’t matter whether she’ll accept it or says she doesn’t want it (she probably realizes herself how overdue it is), she should have one. She has the film work that deserves recognition, but she has also done a lot of work her whole life for the welfare of animals. She could win either the Lifetime Achievement or Humanitarian one…..as long as she gets one! I cannot think of a more worthy recipient and find it truly mind-boggling that she doesn’t have one.

    The Academy was going to award Peter O’Toole whether or not he accepted….I remember at first he was hesitant. Would the award sit in the Academy building (where I assume Scott’s and Brando’s are) if Doris Day declined taking it into her home. Maybe they could try again……she must realize her fans want this for her. I wonder if she would feel differently about the Humanitarian Oscar for her work with animals……that one she may accept! Just an idea.

    Eventually Glenn Close I agree….but Doris Day is in her 90s.

    Doris Day doesn’t want it. Why make the effort when other living veterans / legends are eager to receive the elusive recognition?

    The academy has reached out to Doris Day, but she privately told them she won’t attend the ceremony if they give her an honorary award. The last time she agreed to do such a thing was for the Cecil B. De Mille Award in 1989. She also blew off the Kennedy Center Honors.

    Tom do you really think it’s too soon to honor Close with an honorary?

    It shouldn’t matter that she would not attend the ceremony. Others haven’t. It would be such a shame for her to not ever receive an Honorary Oscar. I thought she might be more “accepting” of the Humanitarian Award for her work with animals…..the award would most definitely draw attention to her cause.

    Doris Day does not want the recognition. Outside of her humanitarian work she is retired from public life. Respect her wishes and focus on another living legend / veteran who wants honorary attention from the Academy.
