BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Directors Francis Ford Coppola and Jean-Luc Godard, actor Eli Wallach and historian Kevin Brownlow are this year's recipients of the Governor's Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Coppola will receive the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, the academy said Wednesday, with Godard, Wallach and Brownlow receiving honorary Oscars. The prizes will be given at a dinner Nov. 13.
Coppola, director of the "Godfather" trilogy, is already a five-time Oscar winner. Godard is a key figure in the French New Wave with films including "Breathless."
Wallach is a longtime character actor whose films include "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." And Brownlow is considered the pre-eminent historian of silent films.
