Los Angeles: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will bestow honorary awards on actress Gena Rowlands and writer-director Spike Lee, and present its Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to actress Debbie Reynolds.

The awards were voted for on Tuesday night at a meeting of the Academy's board of governors and will be presented at the seventh annual Governors Awards, scheduled for November 14 at the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland, reports variety.com.
