Stars moved to tears at awards

Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury were moved to tears at the film academy's Governors Awards.

Each of the entertainers accepted honourary Oscar statuettes at a private dinner ceremony at the Hollywood & Highland Centre.

Jolie received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. She became emotional as she thanked her late mother, whom she said inspired her to think of others and give back.

Martin got misty-eyed as he reflected on the dear friends he's made during his five decades in film. He joked that he'd cried while rehearsing his speech in front of his dog earlier that day.

Lansbury brought her two brothers, three children and three grandchildren to the ceremony, where she thanked movies and acting for rescuing her after the death of her husband.
