The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present an Honorary Oscar to Angelina Jolie in November.

Jolie will be given the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her humanitarian work at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 16, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center®.

“The Governors Awards pay tribute to individuals who’ve made indelible contributions in their respective fields,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s honorees and look forward to bringing their peers and colleagues together to celebrate their extraordinary achievements.”

Jolie has traveled abroad to promote social justice efforts such as the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative. She was appointed Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres in 2012 after twelve years of service.

The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, also an Oscar statuette, is given “to an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”
