Yes, Tyler Perry's getting an Oscar this year



You read that correctly. The Academy announced that both Tyler Perry and the Motion Picture Television Fund will be receiving the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at this year's Oscars.

The award is given out to an “individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry,” and will be handed out during Sunday's ceremony (the first time since 2009).

For reference, those who've received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in recent years include Angelina Jolie, Geena Davis, Debbie Reynolds, Harry Belafonte, and Oprah Winfrey among others.
