Upcoming Governors Award honorees Angelina Jolie, Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Italian costume designer Piero Tosi have weighed in on receiving their special Oscars, which will be given out at a non-televised black-tie dinner November 16 (Tom Hanks and Anthony Hopkins are a couple of the big names feting the recipients). Quote highlights from the AP below.

Angelina Jolie on receiving the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award:

"Paul Newman has been a hero of mine since I was a little girl. Receiving the Hersholt award makes me feel like I am on the right path but also reminds me I have more to do... It is an honor and a pleasure to work on behalf of refugee children and victims of rape. No matter how much I have to do, how busy my life is, I am always aware that the challenges are absolutely nothing in comparison to what they face on a daily basis."

Angela Lansbury on receiving the lifetime achievement award:

"It's a nod for everything I've done, in a sense. That's what it means to me: It is really an acknowledgement of a good career, a good career as an actress in Hollywood… My early days at MGM were thrilling and exciting beyond words because it all happened so fast. I started off with three big, huge movies ['Gaslight,' 'National Velvet' and 'The Picture of Dorian Grey']."

Steve Martin on receiving an honorary lifetime achievement award:

"It goes back to the '80s and '90s — that all that work was actually registering with somebody in a kind of serious way. I and all the people I worked with, we took it very seriously and we worried a lot about it, so it's quite a compliment to have it regarded in some way. It's quite an honor.

It doesn't bother me that traditionally, comedies don't get recognized on a yearly basis. But in the honorary academy list, there are a lot of comedians and funny people recognized."

Piero Tosi on receiving an honorary lifetime achievement award:

"Mostly, I dreamt a lot watching American movies of the '30s and '40s. That wonderful season fed me throughout my career."
