Tom Hanks To Be Honoured With Lifetime Achievement Award At Golden Globes
America’s Dad, Tom Hanks is to be awarded with a Lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globe awards next year. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) released a statement recently saying that it was proud to give the legendry actor the 2020 Cecil B DeMille award at Golden Globe event. The event is on 5th January, 2020.
The Cecil B. DeMille Award is an honourary Golden Globe award bestowed by the HFPA for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. It was first presented at the 9th Golden Globe Awards event ceremony in February 1952 and is named in the honor of its first recipient, director Cecil B. DeMille. The HFPA chose Cecil B. DeMille due to his prestige in the industry and his internationally recognized and respected name.
The HFPA said that they have grown to love and admire the 63 year old actor.
"For more than three decades, he's captivated audiences with rich and playful characters," said the organisation's president.
"As compelling as he is on the silver screen, he's equally so behind the camera as a writer, producer and director."
