Steve Jobs to get posthumous Disney Legends award

updated 02:52 pm EDT, Wed July 10, 2013

Dick Clark, John Goodman, Ed Wynn among other winners

The late Steve Jobs has been announced as one of winners of this year's Disney Legends Awards, and will be formally inducted August 10th at a ceremony during the Disney D23 Expo. Jobs was once an investor and CEO at Pixar; after Disney bought the studio, Jobs became Disney's biggest individual shareholder, also joining the Disney board of directors. Because of the connections between Apple and Disney, Apple sometimes puts an unusual emphasis on Pixar content, for instance using movies like Up to market the iPad.

Some other winners include film actors Ed Wynn, Billy Crystal, and John Goodman, animator Glen Keane, and "imagineers" Tony Baxter and Collin Campbell. Disney is also giving the nod to Dick Clark, best known for his role in game shows, New Year's Rockin' Eve, and American Bandstand. The latter two fell under the umbrella of ABC, another Disney property.
