"Those things are handled really well by the Oscars and the Screen Actors Guild, we do realise there were some special circumstances of very recent nature that happened and we'll be acknowledging that," he promised.

She'll be presented with the Cecil B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award and there will be a segment of the show dedicated to her and her rich acting career.
