Denzel Washington gets DeMille Award at Golden Globes 2016
So excited to see my favorite actor.
Someone I have watched entertain so many, Denzel Washington won a huge award in being honored for his outstanding and excellence in entertainent.
The Cecil B. DeMille Award is an honorary Golden Globe Award bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. It was first presented on February 21, 1952 at the 9th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony and is named in honor of its first recipient, director Cecil B. DeMille. Honorees are selected by the HFPA board of directors and are presented annually (except for 1976 and 2008). The first woman to receive the honor was Judy Garland in 1962 who, at 39 years of age, was also the youngest honoree ever to receive the award, while Samuel Goldwyn, at the age of 93, in 1973, was the oldest. The first African-American to receive the honor was Sidney Poitier in 1982.
