George Clooney to receive Cecil B. DeMille award at Golden Globes

Posted on

George Clooney will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, annually given to those who offer “outstanding contributions” to the entertainment world, at this year’s Golden Globes.

Clooney was nominated for his first Golden Globe in 1996 for his performance as a doctor on medical drama ER. He later won Golden Globes for his performances in 2001’s O Brother, Where Art Thou?, 2006’s Syriana (this role also won him an Oscar), and 2011’s The Descendants.

The 53-year-old most recently starred in the Oscar-winning Gravity, as well as last year’s The Monuments Men. He’s currently working on the upcoming sci-fi Disney film Tomorrowland, which is set to arrive in theaters in 2015.

Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, and Morgan Freeman were the last three actors to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Clooney will be presented with the honor at the January 11 Golden Globes ceremony, according to Variety.
