About Town: Governors Awards
Los Angeles, Nov. 13
"Isn't this fun tonight? It's like the Oscars from the '30s," Rabbit Hole director John Cameron Mitchell exclaimed of the nontelevised Governors Awards on Saturday at the Hollywood & Highland ballroom.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences handed out honorary awards to Eli Wallach and film historian Kevin Brownlow and presented the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award to Francis Ford Coppola. (No-show Jean-Luc Godard was toasted in absentia.)
The event, which has become an institution in just two years, "allows the Academy to do real justice to people who deserve its highest honors," Fox co-chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos said.
