Oprah and Jaycee Dugard honored at the DVF Awards
Oprah, Jaycee Dugard are among the honorees at the DVF Awards
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Oprah Winfrey was honored with a "Lifetime Leadership" award at the third annual DVF Awards.

Winfrey was hugged by longtime friend, designer and humanitarian Diane von Furstenberg, as she took the stage to accept the accolade on Friday night.

Von Furstenberg called Winfrey the "most formidable person I have ever met in my life."



Winfrey spent much of her speech honoring another of the night's award winners, Jaycee Dugard. Dugard was abducted when she was 11 and held against her will for 18 years.

Dugard took the stage soon after and got emotional as she thanked her mother for never giving up hope of finding her. She also spoke about her JAYC Foundation, which supports families dealing with abduction and other tragedies.
