The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will honor Spielberg at the event on Jan. 13.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award is usually given to actors and actresses for their "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field."

Spielberg was named the 2008 recipient at a Wednesday morning press conference hosted by actor Josh Brolin.

The six-time Golden Globe winner and 12-time nominee will join Warren Beatty, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Williams, Michael Douglas, Gene Hackman, Harrison FordAl Pacino and Barbra Streisand as the recipients of the honor since 2000.

Nominations for the 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be announced on Dec. 13.

Meanwhile, in other Golden Globes news, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter Rumer has been selected as 2008 Miss Golden Globe. The teenager will assist in the Golden Globes ceremony.

The role of Miss Golden Globe is given to the daughter of a well-known celebrity each year; Jack Nicholson's daughter Lorraine filled the position earlier this year.
