Given I have carried a torch for Debbie Reynolds for more years than I would like to remember, I was very happy to learn that she is receiving the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the seventh annual Governors Awards, which will be held November 14 at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland in Los Angeles. Director Spike Lee and actress Gena Rowlands will also receive honorary Oscars.
Anyhow, congratulations to Debbie Reynolds! To celebrate here are a few pictures from her career.
