(KTVI) – Even though the Oscars aren’t until next year, there is already a buzz surrounding the awards.  Each year, before the Academy Award’s ceremony, the Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hold their own event.

This event is called the Governor’s Awards.  At this ceremony in 2014, Angelina Jolie will be presented with an honorary Oscar, according to tvguide.com.

Jolie was chosen to receive this award because of her contributions to charities and also her contributions to the entertainment industry.

Steve Martin, designer Piero Tosi, and Angela Lansbury are also set to receive these honorary Oscars.
