The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences knows you can’t keep a secret in this town, so itĀ  announced the honorees of its first-ever Governors Awards event as soon as voting by the board of governors was finished about 11 p.m. Thursday.

Three deserving people, Lauren Bacall, cinematographer Gordon Willis and producer Roger Corman, were selected to receive honorary awards, meaning the Oscar statuette that has eluded each of them for a lifetime. Producer and veteran studio executive John Calley will receive the Irving G. Thalberg award, which is presented for excellence in producing and was last given to Dino De Laurentiis in 2001. No Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award will beĀ presented — Jerry Lewis got it in February.
