For the first time, the Academy will award the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Oscar to two recipients
For the first time the Academy will hand the special Oscar to two recipients: filmmaker Perry and the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
Black Panther.“Tyler’s cultural influence extends far beyond his work as a filmmaker,” Rubin said. “He has quietly and steadily focused on humanitarian and social justice causes from the beginning of his career, caring for people who are most often ignored.”
Rubin also highlighted the MPTF, a 100-year-old organization that provides financial relief, social services, housing accommodations, and more to industry members, making a huge impact during the pandemic. Hersholt, the Danish-American actor and director who inspired the award, served as the fund’s president for 18 years.
“The work of the MPTF is more vital than ever, and the organization has gone above and beyond to help our community,” Rubin said. “The sheer number of individuals and families—from every corner of our industry’s workforce—aided during the pandemic and over the last 100 years is nothing short of extraordinary.” headtopics.com
As with the honorary Oscars, recipients of the Jean Hersholt Award are selected by the Academy’s board of governors. The statuette is traditionally given at the Governors Awards, a separate ceremony that takes place in the fall and is not televised. But due to the pandemic, the 2020 ceremony was canceled. For die-hard Oscar viewers, bringing the honorary awards to the main telecast will be a welcome change. The 2021 Oscars will be held on April 25 and will air on ABC.
