The actors shared a kiss at the podium and were joined by guests including Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson; Reese Witherspoon; and Quentin Tarantino.

“Can we just get married? We’ve never had a celebration like this before,” Hawn said.

The two actors thanked their families and each other during Thursday’s presentation.

“Thank you to my beautiful daughter and my other beautiful daughter,” Hawn said. “This means more to me as I start reflecting on things. I was a dancer and I carried my dancing shoes up here looking for an agent. I couldn’t find an agent, I found a fabulous dentist but I couldn’t find an agent.”

“That star is part of ‘yes.’ I said yes to Kurt Russell. I said yes to Bill Hudson, and without Bill I wouldn’t have had Katie and Oliver. I wish my mom and my dad could see me.”

“I owe a special debt of appreciation to my family,” Russell said. “Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me.

“Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life,” Russell added. “Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”

Hawn, 71, and Russell, 66, have been together since 1983, but have co-starred together in one film, in 1987’s “Overboard,” People reported. Both actors have new movies coming out this month. Russell will star with Chris Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which debuts Friday; Hawn stars in “Snatched,” which opens nationally on May 12, People reported.

Park employees have undergone intense training to make the Pandora experience as real as possible, officials said. 

Among other things, cast members are learning the Na'vi language used in the movie.

The movie's gravity-defying floating mountains have been recreated for the Animal Kingdom attraction.

"The floating mountains that are here in the world of 'Avatar' are completely jaw dropping," Disney imagineer Matt Beiler said. 

"You can walk directly under them and they tower above your head. And what's really interesting is that you can walk completely around them and every view from every different angle is completely new and unique and amazing.”

Clowns who put on funny faces for a living are saying that “It” will hit their bottom line.

“It’s a horror movie and it affects people’s thoughts and opinions on what a clown is,” Celine Harland told the BBC.

She said that clowns are just bouncing back after last year’s series of creepy clown sightings in the United States and in the United Kingdom.

Matthew Faint, a clown who goes by the name “Mattie the clown,” is hoping that people don’t take their children to go see “It.”

“There’s just so many horrible movies out there... clowns that eat people or whatever,” Faint told the BBC.

It” hits theaters in September. It stars Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise the clown.

Film academy will stick with accounting firm despite Oscars flub

Despite its culpability in a high-profile gaffe at this year’s Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will continue working with accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, officials told members.

Among other duties, the firm is responsible for organizing results and monitoring the distribution of awards at the Oscars. It took responsibility for a flub that led presenters to name “La La Land” as the winner of this year’s Best Picture award instead of the actual winner, “Moonlight.”

In a letter sent to members Wednesday and obtained by the Los Angeles Times, academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said the organization has been “unsparing in our assessment that the mistake made by representatives of the firm was unacceptable.”

“Throughout the last month, the academy team has worked hand in hand with PwC to review our wide-ranging relationship – everything from Oscars voting, auditing, and taxes – during which we asked them to lay out for us a path and a process (toward) ensuring that everything will continue to the high standards the academy expects and you deserve,” she wrote. “After a thorough review, including an extensive presentation of revised protocols and ambitious controls, the board has decided to continue working with PwC.”

Boone Isaacs said a number of new protocols were also agreed to Tuesday during a meeting of the academy’s Board of Governors.

Among other things, PwC agreed to add a third “allotting leader” who will sit in the control room with the show’s director during the ceremony and make sure the correct names are read for the correct awards.

The mistake at this year’s Oscars came after a PwC partner accidentally gave presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the back-up envelope for the Actress in a Leading Role award.

The accounting firm apologized for the mix-up.
