"Star Wars" producer Kathleen Kennedy and veteran actress Cicely Tyson will receive honorary awards this year, recognizing their lifetime achievements in the movie industry, the Motion Picture Academy said on September 6.
Kennedy, who will be honored with her producer husband Frank Marshall, will be the first woman to receive the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award that is given to film producers annually for their body of work.
Kennedy and Marshall co-founded Amblin Entertainment with director Steven Spielberg in 1981, producing box office hits that went on to become movie favorites including "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Jurassic Park" and "The Color Purple."
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the annual Oscars, said in a statement the honorary awards would be presented at a gala dinner in Los Angeles in November.    -Reuters
