On Saturday night, Oprah Winfrey was given her very own little gold man. The actress received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, an honorary Oscar, for her great philanthropic efforts over the years.

The award was presented to Oprah by a young woman who had benefited personally from the talk show host’s charity. Winfrey’s foundation had given her a grant to go to high school. Upon seeing a living representation of the good work she’s done before her, Winfrey teared up.

The talk show host said about the win, “I’d like to do more films, but to receive [this award] means more to me than any film, any acclaim, even an Oscar, because what it says is you all get it…All of us can make a difference through the life we lead. We’re all here to help each other.”

What are some of Winfrey’s accomplishments? Through her three foundations, she has built the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, rebuilt housing in the Gulf Coast, helped homeless animals, and saved children all over the world, just to name a few.

Oprah isn’t the first actor to be given the prestigious prize. Past recipients include Paul Newman, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.
