We're about one month away from the announcement of this year's Honorary Oscar recipients. They're usuallly announced at the end of August for a November Governor's Awards ceremony. This year's ceremony will be on November 12th. Last year rumors circled that it was Doris Day's turn but that didn't turn out to be accurate. For the past two years, The Film Experience has tried to make up for the dearth of movie site reporting about the Oscar Honorary careers (beyond the sharing of press releases / YouTube videos of their speeches) with mini-retrospectives so we're always hoping they'll choose well to give us wonderful careers to discuss right here.
Let's reprint a list of worthies we shared a year or so ago, with a few adjustments, in case any of the elites in the Academy are undecided about who to put forth or get behind for these coveted honors.

“Think of your favorite movie. Now, think of it with an entirely different cast,” said David Rubin, a member of the Casting Directors Branch on the Academy’s Board of Governors. “Hard to do, isn’t it.”
Renowned casting directors Lynn Stalmaster, Juliet Taylor and Mike Fenton were celebrated at the first-ever “Perfect Choice: The Art of the Casting Director” event held at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night.
“I think the Academy has gone a long way in a short period of time and I feel honored to be here,” said Fenton. “We casting directors have always hoped the time would come when the Academy would realize that we had something to offer Hollywood and I think that time is coming soon.”
