The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to present honorary Oscars to actress Cicely Tyson, composer Lalo Schifrin and veteran publicist Marvin Levy at the Academy's 10th annual Governors Awards, which is set to take place Nov. 18 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland Center.

The board also voted to present its Irving G. Thalberg Award to Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. The Thalberg Award is given to producers "whose body of work reflect a consistently high quality of motion picture production.” It was last given to Francis Ford Coppola in 2010.

Tyson, who was nominated for an Academy Award as best lead actress in 1973's Sounder, has starred in such films as The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, The River Niger, Fried Green Tomatoes, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, The Help, Alex Cross and Last Flag Flying.
