Veteran actor Jackie Chan and some other Hollywood veterans will be awarded with honorary Oscar by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Science. The awards will be handed at the 2016 Governor’s Awards to be held on 12th November in Hollywood. This is the 8th edition of Governor’s Awards which was created specially for honorary Oscars as the viewers complained that the main awards show was getting too long.
