    Oprah Winfrey gets an Oscar

    Oprah Winfrey, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in The Color Purple, is finally getting a trophy.

    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the OWN owner with an honorary Oscar award on November 12 at the annual Governors Awards dinner.

    Oprah is being honored for her humanitarian efforts, not her acting.

    The award is “given to an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry,” reads a statement released by the board members.

    “She has been especially dedicated to supporting educational initiatives and raising awareness of issues that affect women and children, both in the United States and around the globe,” it read.

    Along with Oprah, James Earl Jones and makeup artist Dick Smith will also receive honorary awards.
