Sing it again, y’all: Jackie Chan is getting an honorary Oscar! The Rush Hour star will receive the honor at the Academy’s Governors Awards in November, as part of a class that also includes Anne V. Coates, the editor who’s worked on films as varied as Lawrence of Arabia and 50 Shades of Grey; Lynn Stalmaster, the casting director behind Harold and Maude and Deliverance; and documentarian Frederick Wiseman, whose stripped-down style has been a major influence in his field. Coates won a competitive Oscar for Lawrence, while the other four have never been nominated.
