Oprah Winfrey is in her tears as she received her Oscar at the third annual Governors Awards. Oprah was presented with the coveted award of Jean Hersholt Humanitarian from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences during the event at the Hollywood & Highland Centre, Los Angeles on 12 November.

Oprah told that she never imagined receiving an Oscar, especially for doing what is part of her calling, part of her being. She added saying that if we are not a former colored girl born in Mississippi in 1954, it is impossible for you to know what this journey has meant.

She also told that it is unimaginable that she would be standing before us, voted by the board of governors. She continued when she says thank you, the thank you comes from a place deeper even than she knew, because it’s not just from her, it’s from everybody who made me possible. Oprah was earlier nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Color Purple’. During the event, her BFFs, Gayle King, Tyler Perry, Maria Shriver, Sidney Poitier and John Travolta, were all on hand to present the award for her.

The awarding event was created in 2009 to pay tribute to the winners of honorary Oscars. This year’s Governors Awards was attended by Hollywood veterans that include Woody Harrelson, Ellen Barkin and Alec Baldwin among others.
