The 2008 Cecil B DeMille Award Goes To…

This is how out of it I’ve been. I just realized that the Golden Globes are in two months and I have absolutely no idea what movies are being released in the next two months. But enough about me and more about the 65h Annual Golden Globes.


The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced yesterday that Steven Spielberg is the recipient of the 2008 Cecile B. DeMille Award.

Steven Spielberg will be honored at next January’s Golden Globe Awards telecast
with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his “outstanding contribution to the
entertainment field

Spielberg has received six Golden Globes; for Best Director for Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan,” or Best Motion Picture (Drama) for E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler’s List, and Saving Private Ryan; and for Best Foreign Language Film For Letters From Iwo Jima. He received 12 additional Golden Globe nominations; eight as Best Director for Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial, The Color Purple, Amistad, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence and Munich, three as a producer on Best Motion Picture (Drama) nominees The Color Purple, Empire of the Sun, and Amistad,” and one for his screenplay for Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Steven Spielberg is a principal partner of DreamWorks Studios, which he
co-founded with Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen in October 1994 and which
was sold to Paramount Pictures in early 2006. Under their leadership, DreamWorks
has enjoyed critical and commercial success, and has been responsible for some
of the most honored films in recent years […]

One of the industry’s most successful and influential filmmakers, Spielberg has directed, produced, or executive produced some of the top-grossing films of all time, including Jurassic Park and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Among his myriad honors, he is a three-time Academy Award® winner, earning two Oscars® for Best Director and Best Picture for Schindler’s List, and a third Oscar® for Best Director for Saving Private Ryan. […]

Since Steven Spielberg is going to receive every lifetime acievement award that exists in the entertainment industry, he might as well start getting them now. It’ll take 10 years for him to receive every single one.

Also announced by the HFPA yesterday, Rumer Willis, the spawn of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis will be this years Miss Golden Globe.

“Rumer, age 19, is the daughter of two-time Golden Globe nominee Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, who received four Golden Globe nominations and a Golden Globe as
Best Actor in a Television Series (Comedy or Musical) for Moonlighting.

We are delighted to have Rumer Willis join us to celebrate ‘The 65 th Annual Golden Globe Awards,'” said [Jorge] Camara at the announcement. “Since both of her parents have enjoyed successful entertainment careers in the acting profession, she is doubly qualified to serve as Miss Golden Globe.”‘

Yay… there is nothing I’m looking foward to more than presence of Rumer Willis at the Golden Globes. Excuse me while I jump with joy.
