2009: Roger Corman wins a lifetime achievement award

Roger Corman was a legendary figure among sci-fi and horror fans as he produced or directed dozens of B movies over the course of a career that has now spanned five decades. Although Corman classics such as "Attack of the Crab Monsters," "A Bucket of Blood" and "Gas-s-s-s" were never Oscar-worthy on their own, the Academy recognized their collective worth in 2009 when they awarded Corman a lifetime achievement award "for his rich engendering of films and filmmakers."
