    I thought there was already a thread for this but searched and couldn’t find one. Anyway, I am thinking we found out who the recipients were of last year’s Honorary Oscars in September…..is that correct? I would like to read your thoughts about the possibilities for this year.

    Harrison Ford
    Liv Ullman

    My top two choices for the moment.

    A person is put forward by a governor from their own branch (there are only three per group). Keeping that in mind, there are some interesting possibilities.

    Alfred Molina just joined the acting governors (replacing Tom Hanks). His first movie was “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Could he want Harrison Ford?

    Whoopi Goldberg just joined last year and was the one who pushed the worthy Donald Sutherland. If she goes for someone she knows very well, how about Billy Crystal? Bob Hope received a couple of honorary Oscars for hosting so often, and Crystal is second behind him in number of ceremonies. I could also see her pushing for Cicely Tyson.

    Laura Dern is the third acting governor, and I’m not sure who would be her top choice. Would it be too crass to put forward her own father Bruce Dern?

    I could see one of the directors (Susanne Bier, Kimberly Peirce, Steven Spielberg) going for David Lynch since he has had a much higher profile in the past year (albeit on TV). Other possible directors could be Ridley Scott, Peter Weir or maybe Brian De Palma (one of Spielberg’s best friends from the 1970s).

    The one with 5 decades of real industry award recognition and the #1 movie of this century according to critics, David Lynch.

    Spielberg would more likely push for Brian de Palma than Lynch, ditto Kimberly Peirce who is good friends with de Palma.

    Lynch has always been something of an outsider of Hollywood. Whilst he has had 3 nominations to de Palma’s zero, de Palma has been far more a part of Hollywood than Lynch. Both have directed a number of legendary films and both would make very worth recepients. I’d hate to choose between them.

    Of course we have all read that Doris Day does not want it. However, I would hope she would accept the Humanitarian Oscar for all the work she has done on behalf of animals. It would not only bring awareness to her cause, but at least she would have an Oscar. Since I’ve sort of given up hope she will ever get one, I am hoping for Kim Novak, Max Von Sydow or Liv Ullman.

    Has Barbra Streisand ever won the Hersholt Humanitarian Award?

    Could Laura Dern push for David Lynch, or does someone from the directing branch have to push for him?

    One of the three directors would have to be his advocate at next week’s meeting. She could certainly speak to them privately and ask them to make the push.

    He probably wouldn’t show up in person to accept it, but I’d like to see Terrence Malick get an Honorary Oscar.

    He’s not as reclusive as his rep makes him appear.

    So if that is true, who pushed for Angela Lansbury back at the day??

    Anyway, after all the Weinstein debacle, i think Mia Farrow has her biggest chance to get the so-well deserving oscar for her humanitary work. After all, her son opened all of it.

    So from what I read the Academy board meets tomorrow to decide this year’s honorary recipients. I predict an actor, a director and one or 2 others.
