2010 Cecil B. DeMille Winner: Robert DeNiro
In terms of a excellent career, and some incredible performances, the HFPA has chosen an incredible actor, whose long list of movies includes:
The Godfather Part II
Meet the Parents
The Deer Hunter
And others. I am very happy for DeNiro, as he truly does deserve it. However, I must play the Devil's advocate and say that it is a shame that no woman has won it since Barbra Streisand (which I believe was a decade ago), and this would have been the perfect year for Meryl Streep, as she will probably be nominated next year for her new role as Margaret Thatcher. Oh well, Bob is a deservant recepient. I hope Marty Scorsese is the one that presents it to him, cause that would be awesome.
