Like Godard, Roger Corman is deserving of every Achievement Award that any cinematic body can deliver. However, unlike Godard, Corman will actually show up for his latest one.

Corman received an Honorary Oscar last year (the same bit of metal they’re trying to hoist on Godard), but he’ll be honored by Fantastic Fest this year during a world premiere of his latest – Sharktopus – alongside his wife and production partner Julie, who has had an integral role in bringing many of his movies to life. The screening will take place Friday, September 24th as part of a double feature with the Filipino Exploitation documentary Machete Maidens Unleashed! which was directed by Not Quite Hollywood‘s Mark Hartley.

Finally, we’ve figured out why Godard won’t leave home for his Honorary Oscar. He’s waiting on the Lifetime Achievement Award from Fantastic Fest.
