The Los Angeles Times is reporting today that Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola will receive this year’s Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, while Eli Wallach and French New Wave auteur Jean-Luc Godard will be both be getting special lifetime achievement Oscars (along with British film preservationist Kevin Brownlow). Personally, I’d stay up late to watch this group of heavyweights getting richly-deserved gold. How about you, Popwatchers?This year, the Academy has decided to give out the honorary awards off-camera, at a dinner on Nov. 13. So, naturally, they pick a bunch of winners we’d actually like to see on TV. (Bummer.)
