Denzel Washington to receive DeMille Award at Golden Globes


Recommended Posts

Denzel Washington, who has earned six Academy Award nominations -- more than any other black actor in history, has been named the 2016 recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The presentation will be made at the 73rd annual Golden Globes ceremony on January 10, 2016. The ceremony will be televised by NBC.


Washington won Oscars for "Glory" (Best Supporting Actor 1989) and "Training Day" (Best Actor 2001). He is one of 12 people who have won Academy Awards for acting in both the leading and supporting categories. The others: Helen Hayes, Jack Lemmon, Ingrid Bergman, Dame Maggie Smith, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Gene Hackman, Jessica Lange, Kevin Spacey and Cate Blanchett.


He also has been nominated for six Golden Globes, and won for his performances in "Glory" (Best Supporting Actor in a Drama) and "The Hurricane" (Best Actor in a Drama 1999).


Last year's honoree was George Clooney, who was acknowledged for his contributions to film and television and his humanitarian efforts.

I always believed Washington would win an Oscar one day after seeing his performance as a menacing political figure in the 1986 Sidney Lumet drama "Power." Never dreamed he'd win two -- or have a career as great as it is.
