Why Is it that Sir Christopher Does not get An Academy Honorary Award?

At the moment, and forevermore, because he's dead. It's an unbelievably slippery slope to begin giving non-competitive Academy Awards to deceased actors and actresses.

But I presume you're wondering why he was never given one when he was alive, and I do think it is a shame that that never happened. Then again Karloff, Lugosi, even Lon Chaney never got one, so at least there's a precedent.

That is all that needs to be said to tell me how bogus those awards are.
I never watch the Oscars. I never support it.
