Meryl Streep Will Receive Cecil B. DeMille Award at Golden Globes 2017

Meryl Streep is set to receive the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, to air on January 8!

“It’s no surprise that the HFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said in a statement (via Variety). “Meryl’s enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen. Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage. For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.”

Meryl has been nominated 29 times and won 8 times over the course of her career.

Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Woody Allen, and Jodie Foster are just some of the past recipients of the award.
