Steve Martin Is Getting an Honorary Oscar

Steve Martin is finally getting an Academy Award. Martin, who has hosted the Oscars three times (most recently in 2010 with Alec Baldwin), will be the recipient of an honorary governor's award, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced yesterday. Martin has won an Emmy, four Grammys, and countless other awards, but never an Oscar. A short film he wrote and starred in, The Absent-Minded Waiter, was nominated for an Oscar in 1977. "I'm proud to win an honorary Oscar this year," Martin tweeted. "A salute to comedy and all the great people I've worked with."
