LOS ANGELES (AP) — For Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin, Angela Lansbury and costume designer Piero Tosi, Saturday night is Oscar night.

The four will accept Oscar statuettes at the film academy’s Governors Awards ceremony Saturday night in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles.

Jolie will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, while the others will accept honorary Academy Awards for their distinguished careers.

The black-tie dinner ceremony is untelevised to preserve a sense of intimacy and allow for ample tributes to each honoree.

This is the fifth year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has presented its honorary awards at a separate ceremony.

Clips from the event may be included in the March 2 Oscar telecast.
