Sony's Amy Pascal paid tribute to the late producer Ziskin, saying, "I had no idea how much her death would affect me. There are big holes left in so many lives."

Ziskin produced the Academy Awards in 2002 and in 2007 and was the executive producer of the hit movie "Pretty Women." 

The evening also honored Jane Fonda, who was presented her award by Sherry Lansing, the former head of Paramount, who recalled working with Fonda and admiring how "non-compromising" the actress could be, reports THR.
