The Golden Globe® Awards will be on NBC, in HD, Sunday, January 16, 2011 from 5:00-8:00 (PST)/8:00-11:00 (EST) this year.
Robert DeNiro will get the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award in acting.
Although Robert De Niro is considered one of our finest actors, maybe the finest of a generation, he has not yet been honored with this particular award until now. Actors who have also been awarded with the DeMille, by the HFPA®, prior to DeNiro are:
- Warren Beatty,
- Anthony Hopkins,
- Robin Williams
- Michael Douglas.
Nominated for Golden Globes seven times, mostly for dramatic roles, Mr. DeNiro won only one, for RAGING BULL. Martin Scorcese, the director most associated with Robert DeNiro’s early and most impressive part of his acting career, has won this particular Golden Globe®, for a lifetime of work, already.
He did not win a Golden Globe when he won either of his two Academy Awards, not even for the film that is considered one of the most iconic American film series—when he won the Oscar for GODFATHER II.
