Irish legend to receive honorary Oscar
Irish screen legend Maureen O’Hara is set to finally receive her first Oscar at 2014 Governors Awards.
O’Hara will receive an honorary award in recognition of her outstanding 75-year career. Other honorary award recipients will be Harry Belafonte, Hayao Miyazaki and Jean-Claude Carrière.
The Dublin born actress has starred in some of the most iconic movies in cinema history including how Green Was My Valley, The Quiet Man, The Black Swan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Miracle on 34th Street.
Despite appearing in several high profile movies, O’Hara has never won an Academy Award.
However, she has received other honours from the industry such as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted on who should receive honorary awards earlier this week.
O’Hara will receive her honorary Oscar at the sixth annual Governors Awards on Nov. 8. The ceremony will take place at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland.
