    Default Lauren Bacall, Roger Corman to get early Oscars

    The Academy Awards won't be presented until March, but the first Oscar statuettes of the season are set to be handed out Saturday night at a private, black-tie dinner in Hollywood.
    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is breaking with tradition and presenting its honorary Oscars away from the televised ceremony. Actress Lauren Bacall, producer-director Roger Corman and cinematographer Gordon Willis will each receive Oscar statuettes at the inaugural Governors Awards event.
    The winner of this year's Irving J. Thalberg Memorial Award, producer John Calley, will also receive his trophy at the star-studded dinner. Each of the four recipients were chosen by the academy's Board of Governors.
    Annette Bening, Tom Hanks, Kirk Douglas, Anjelica Huston and Quentin Tarantino have signed on as presenters for the evening, which will include 600 invited guests celebrating at the Grand Ballroom above the Kodak Theatre.
    Academy president Tom Sherak said the Governors Awards event "will be full of memorable moments celebrating (the honorees') accomplishments."
    Bacall made her screen debut with Humphrey Bogart in "To Have and Have Not" in 1944. She went on to star in more than 30 films, including classics such as "The Big Sleep" and "Key Largo."
    Corman has directed more than 50 films and produced more than 300 during his five-decade career, including "It Conquered the World" and 1960's "The Little Shop of Horrors."
    Willis is a two-time Academy Award nominee for "Zelig" and "The Godfather, Part III."
    Calley's producing credits include "Postcards from the Edge," "The Remains of the Day," for which he earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination, "Closer" and "The Da Vinci Code."
    Other guests expected Saturday include Jeff Bridges, James Cameron, Dennis Hopper, Ron Howard and Julie Taymor.
    The event will be taped but not televised, and excerpts will be shown during the 82nd annual Academy Awards on March 7.

    Bacall should've won a few years ago for "The Mirror Has Two Faces."
