O'Toole was voted for an Honorary Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but he sent a handwritten open letter to AMPAS stating he was "enchanted" by the gesture, but said that since he is "still in the game and might win the lovely bugger outright, would the Academy please defer the honor until I am 80?"
