Sometimes the Academy gets it right.
The Lifetime Achievement Oscars, the Governor’s Awards, been announced and they’re very, good.
Legendary actress Cicely Tyson, 91, who continuously amaze, is the top of the list.
Composer Lalo Schifrin, the individual who gave us the “Mission Impossible” music and plenty of other scores, is next.
And then arrive a trio very associated with Steven Spielberg. Kathleen Kennedy — now head of LucasFilm– and Frank Marshall, whose credits can be a resume of the highest films since 1976– can get the Irving Thalberg Award. Start clapping now. Their clip reels normally takes 2 days.
Joining this group is our dear pal Marvin Levy, Spielberg’s publicist since “Close Encounters.” He’s the primary publicist to take delivery of an honorary Oscar, and it’s much deserved. Marvin– who worked on the many Amblin, Dreamworks, etc movies, several of which Kennedy and Marshall produced– is beloved.
Nicely done, governors.
