Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman is taking home a new prize _ a
lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Wednesday that
Freeman will receive the group's Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 69th
annual Globes ceremony on Jan. 15.
The 74-year-old Freeman is a five-time Oscar nominee who won the
supporting-actor prize for 2004's "Million Dollar Baby." Freeman's
Oscar nominations include best actor for 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy,"
for which he won a Golden Globe.
Freeman made his big-screen debut as an extra in 1965's "The
Pawnbroker," and his film work remained modest over the next two
His big successes early on came in theater, which brought him a Tony
Award nomination for 1978's "The Mighty Gents," and television,
where he was a regular for six years on the children's show "The
Electric Company."
Freeman's big-screen career took off with 1987's crime drama "Street
Smart," which earned him his first Oscar nomination. Among his
credits since then are "Glory," "Unforgiven," "The Shawshank
Redemption," "Bruce Almighty" and its sequel, this year's family hit
Tale," and the current "Batman" franchise, including next summer's
"The Dark Knight Rises."
DeMille Award winners are chosen by the board of directors for the
foreign press group, which includes about 90 reporters who cover
Hollywood for overseas outlets.
The DeMille Award went to Robert De Niro a year ago. Other past
winners include Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Shirley MacLaine,
Nicholson and Clint Eastwood, who directed Freeman in "Million Dollar Baby."
