This is by far the best news of the week.
HFPA President Philip Berk along with Actor James Caan announced on Wednesday November 15 that five time Golden Globe winner Warren Beatty with receive the 2007 Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 64th Golden Globe Awards on January 15.
“Beatty received five Golden Globes; including one as Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for Heaven Can Wait and another as Best Director for Reds. He also received Golden Globes as producer of Best Picture (drama) Bugsy and Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) for Heaven Can Wait. He has received a total of 12 Golden Globe nominations; including Best Actor (Drama) for Reds, Bugsy, Bonnie and Clyde and Splendor In the Grass. He received Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) nominations for Bulworth and Shampoo. He also received Best Screenplay nominations for Bulworth and Reds. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association named him “Most Promising Newcomer” in 1962.”
I can’t think of a better actor to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. The first time I saw Bonnie and Clyde, I fell under the Warren Beatty spell.
And what a great spell it is.
Reds. Splendor in the Grass. Shampoo. Bulworth. McCabe and Mrs. Miller.
Warren Beatty is the best!
The 64th annual Golden Globe Awards nominations will be announced on December 14th.
