After the shocking controversy of famed actor/comedian Eddie Murphy’s decision to pull out as host of this coming year’s big Oscar show, there seemed to be ailing hope for anyone involved in the ceremony. All of that changed again however this past Saturday night as the third annual Governors Awards took place with top honors for actor James Earl Jones and famed talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey.

Both of the superstars in entertainment were presented with honorary trophies from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, an award that Oprah says is “an unimaginable honor” and one that Jones claimed is “an actor’s wet dream.”
