Clooney to get DeMille award

Oscar-winning actor, director and producer George Clooney will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, an honorary Golden Globe, for his contribution to cinema, organizers of the event said on Monday.

Clooney, 53, one of Hollywood’s leading men on screen and behind the camera, will be honored in January at the Golden Globes Awards, one of the year’s most high-profile awards ceremonies for film and television organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Theo Kingma, the association’s president, said the award was for Clooney’s “outstanding contributions both in front of and behind the camera.”

Clooney is a two-time Oscar winner, as supporting actor in “Syriana” and as a producer of the 2013 best motion picture “Argo.” He has also won three Golden Globes, including best actor in a motion picture for “The Descendants” in 2012 and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” in 2001.
