The Academy To Recognize Tyler Perry During 2021 Oscars


Filmmaker Tyler Perry will be recognized by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences during the 2021 Oscars for his humanitarian efforts reaching beyond Hollywood.

Perry, 51, will receive the 2021 Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award during the live show for his philanthropic and charitable work.

“Tyler’s cultural influence extends far beyond his work as a filmmaker,” Academy President David Rubin said in a statement to Variety. “He has quietly and steadily focused on humanitarian and social justice causes from the beginning of his career, caring for people who are most often ignored.”

The playwright will share the honor with the Motion Picture Television Fund.

“The work of the MPTF is more vital than ever, and the organization has gone above and beyond to help our community,” Rubin continued. “The sheer number of individuals and families—from every corner of our industry’s workforce—aided during the pandemic and over the last 100 years is nothing short of extraordinary.”

Past recipients include Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Frank Sinatra.
