    I thought an honorary Oscar was usually given to someone elderly who was passed over a number of times but "really deserved one", kind of thing, rather than people who never had a chance of getting one the usual way.

    Zero Gravitas and Rob2020 like this.

    Personal opinions about him aside - I think most will agree the man deserves the recognition for his accomplishments as an actor. But i'll stop there.

    I'd agree with this. He was no Laurence Olivier but he put his heart and soul into what he did (and his personal safety regularly at hazard), so well deserved in my opinion.

    It's long overdue.
