Governor’s Awards Adds New Screening Series to Events

6307184_detWith the Governor’s Awards continuing to build momentum in its third year (turning into the best non-televised party of awards season, according to some awards consultants), the Academy is making a week of it with a three-film screening series that runs Nov. 9-11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The first film in the series, “The Exorcist” (1973), highlights the makeup work of Dick Baker, who will receive the Honorary Award; “The Color Purple” (1985) will honor Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipient Oprah Winfrey Nov. 10; and Honorary Award recipient James Earl Jones will be recognized with a screening of “The Great White Hope” (1970).  Tickets for the screenings will be available online starting Nov. 1 for a $5 fee ($3 for Academy members). The invitation-only Governor’s Awards dinner takes place Nov. 12 at the Hollywood & Highland Center.
