Academy posts videos of 2009 Governors Award winners

November 16, 2009 |  2:17 pm


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has posted videos of the 2009 Governors Awards ceremony on Nov. 14, at which actress Lauren Bacall, producer-director Roger Corman, cinematographer Gordon Willis and producer John Calley were each presented with honorary Oscars.

Each of the tributes are heartfelt, though the testimonies to Corman's long and storied career by the likes of Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme and Quentin Tarantino (with fellow Corman alum Jack Nicholson and Peter Bogdanovich in attendance) have a particularly (and appropriately) rollicking vibe.

You can also read full coverage of the event from Pete Hammond at Notes on a Season and Susan King here, and enjoy a gallery of photos from the red carpet here.
