Warren Beatty to Be Honored with Cecil B. DeMille Award

Each year when the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement is handed out at the Golden Globes, it’s surprising that the honoree wasn’t already a DeMille winner. This year’s recipient, Warren Beatty, is no different.

Beatty, a Hollywood fixture since the 1950s, is no stranger to any awards, let alone the Golden Globes. He has received five Globe awards–for everything from producing (Bugsy, Heaven Can Wait) to acting (Heaven Can Wait) to directing (Reds)–and 12 overall nominations, ranging from 1961’s Splendor in the Grass to 1998’s Bulworth and many in between.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which determines the winners of the Golden Globes, in 1962 named Beatty “Most Promising Newcomer.” He has also starred in such memorable films as Bonnie and Clyde, Shampoo, Dick Tracy and Love Affair.

Beatty, whose sister is actress Shirley MacLaine and wife is actress Annette Bening, will join recent DeMille recipients Anthony Hopkins (2006), Robin Williams (’05), Michael Douglas (’04), Gene Hackman (’03), Harrison Ford (’02), Al Pacino (’01), Barbra Streisand (’00) and Jack Nicholson (’99).

The 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards, honoring the year’s best in television and film, will air live Monday, Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
