Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, honoured her late mother at the  film academy's fifth.

The star was moved to tears as she accepted an honourary Oscar statue at a private dinner at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Angelina received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.  The 38-year-old actress-director became emotional as she thanked her late mother, whom she said inspired her to think of others and give back.

"To stand here today means I did as she asked," Jolie said. "And if she were alive, she'd be very proud."
