Academy: Godard Will, in Fact, Accept His Honorary Oscar in Person


Who would have thought Jean-Luc Godard’s travel plans would be scrutinized as intensely as if he were Michelle Obama? After his partner, Anne-Marie Mieville, told a journalist the director would not be traveling to pick up his honorary Academy award in November, the Academy claims that Godard has not only thanked the organization for the honor but will also, per his note, come to Los Angeles for the November 13 Governors Awards ceremony. Though considering the “will he or won’t he?” roller coaster of the past two weeks, expect this forecast to change at least ten more times before November. [Deadline]
