Morgan Freeman Earns DeMille Award at Globes

Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman is taking home a new prize: a lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Wednesday that Freeman will receive the group’s Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 69th annual Globes ceremony Jan. 15.

The 74-year-old Freeman is a five-time Oscar nominee who won the supporting-actor prize for 2004’s “Million Dollar Baby.” Freeman’s Oscar nominations include best actor for 1989’s “Driving Miss Daisy,” for which he won a Golden Globe.

The DeMille Award went to Robert De Niro a year ago. Other past winners include Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Shirley MacLaine, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood, who directed Freeman in “Million Dollar Baby.”
