George Clooney to Receive 2015 Cecil B. DeMille Award
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has announced that the winner of this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award (an award for veteran actors who have made significant contributions to film/television) is going to George Clooney. As an actor, writer, director, and producer on both television and in film, Clooney has earned two Oscars, and thirteen Golden Globe nominations for roles in ER, The Descendants, Up in the Air, Michael Clayton, Syriana, O Brother Where Art Thou?, for writing the screenplays for and directing Good Night and Good Luck and The Ides of March. While many will argue that he is over-rewarded (and others simply don't like him), it is hard to deny his veteran status, his career accomplishments, and his worthiness.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globes will take place on January 11, 2015 at 8pm ET.
