This year’s un-televised, private ceremony handed out honorary Oscars to actress Maureen O’Hara, filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere, and actor and activist Harry Belafonte.

Several stars cheered them on, including Sidney Poitier, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Hilary Swank, and Ron Howard.
