Yes the Honorary Awards are almost exactly the same as the Oscars. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) gives out several types of awards. The Academy Award of Merit is the most popular. Winners of this award receive an Oscar statuette for excellence in film making. Currently …winners are chosen from 24 categories. The Academy Honorary Award is also awarded for excellence in film making and recipients also receive the Oscar statuette. The difference is that it is for an achievement not recognized by the current categories of the Merit Awards. Warner Brothers received the first Honorary Award "for prodcuting the Jazz Singer ," the first talking picture. At the 82nd Academy Awards Lauren Bacall received an Honorary Award "in recognition of her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures;" Roger Corman received an Honorary Award "for his rich engendering of films and filmmakers;" and Gordon Willis received an Honorary Award "for unsurpassed mastery of light, shadow, color and motion." The Special Achievement Academy Award is very much like the Award of Merit in that it is awarded for excellence in film making. It is very much like the Honorary Award in that it is for something not recognized by the current categories of the Merit Awards. The difference is that it is always for some achievement during the past calendar year where the Honorary Award is often for an entire body of work. The first Special Achievement Award was give for Visual Effect on The Poseidon Adventure . Most of the Special Achievement Awards have been given for visueal effects, but in 1995 John Lassater received a Special Achievement Award for creating the first feature-length computer-animated film Toy Story . The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award is awarded periodically at the Academy Awards ceremonies to "Creative producers, whose bodies of work reflect a consistently high quality of motion picture production." The award is named for Irving Thalberg, legendary head of the Production Division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, who developed the company's reputation for sophisticated films. The trophy for award recipients is in the form of a bust of Thalberg rather than the familiar "Oscar" statuette. The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award is awarded periodically by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) at the Academy Award ceremonies for an individual's outstanding contributions to humanitarian causes. Unlike the Academy Award of Merit, the nomination and voting for this award are restricted to members of the Board of Governors of AMPAS. The award is named after screen actor Jean Hersholt (1886-1956), who served as president of the Motion Picture Relief Fund for 18 years. He also served as president of AMPAS from 1945 to 1949. Winners of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award are presented with an Oscar statuette.
