Paula Wagner will produce the 2013 Governors Awards for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, it was announced Thursday.
Angelina Jolie will be given the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, and three Honorary Awards will be presented to Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Piero Tosi, at the fifth annual event at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on Saturday, Nov. 16.
