Los Angeles • For Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin, Angela Lansbury and costume designer Piero Tosi, Saturday night is Oscar night.

Jolie will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, while the others will accept honorary Academy Awards for their distinguished careers.

"Receiving the Hersholt award makes me feel like I am on the right path but also reminds me I have more to do," Jolie told The Associated Press this past week. The actress-director is co-founder of the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative and serves as special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Saturday’s black-tie dinner ceremony will not be televised to preserve a sense of intimacy and allow for ample tributes to each honoree, but clips from the event may be included in the March 2 Oscar telecast. This is the fifth year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has presented its honorary awards at a separate ceremony.

"This event is a celebration of film, and it is really the beginning of Academy Awards season," said Paula Wagner, who is producing the ceremony.
