Things We Saw Today: Denzel Washington Presents Samuel L. Jackson With Lifetime Achievement Oscar

Samuel L. Jackson gets lifetime achievement Oscar from Denzel Washington

All eyes are on the Academy Awards this Sunday, but several honorary Oscars were given out this weekend at the Governors Awards. Recipients included iconic screenwriter and comedian Elaine May and Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann, as well as Danny Glover, who was given the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. But the it was Samuel L. Jackson who (as always) stole the show. The award was presented to Jackson by his longtime friend Denzel Washington (who is nominated for best actor for The Tragedy of Macbeth), who delivered an effusive speech about Jackson’s acting career and philanthropy work. Jackson has supported so many charities over the years that Washington seemed out of breath after running through the list. “That’s what he’s been doing. I don’t know what y’all been doing,” joked Washington.
