Finally, Oprah Winfrey will be publicly recognized for her various achievements. What took this long?! The Motion Picture Academy has just announced that the floundering basic cable mascot will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award — an honorary Oscar awarded to "an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry." And who has, uh, accredited Hollywood more that Winfrey has, selflessly donating thousands upon thousands of hours of precious airtime to needy friends like Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks to promote their totally shitty movies? No one! All hail Saint Oprah! (James Earl Jones is getting one, too.) [Reuters, photo via Getty]
