Next year, a fierce struggle will begin for the Golden Globe statues, but not for everyone. It became known that the actor Jeff Bridges received the award named after Cecil DeMill for his services to the cinema. Before him, the honorary Golden Globe was honored with Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro and other Hollywood “veterans.”
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is pleased to present the 2019 Cecil DeMille Award to Jeff Bridges. The wonderful work of an actor in various genres has won the minds and hearts of world viewers for over sixty years. We look forward to the opportunity to award “Dude” for his achievements in acting career and humanitarian activities at the upcoming Golden Globe-2019 award, – said the president of the association Meher Tatna in an official statement.
The Cecil DeMill Award is presented to talented actors who have had a great influence on the film industry and have made a significant contribution to its development. Jeff Bridges won the Golden Globe nomination five times, the first of which was in 1984 for the John Carpenter film Man from a Star. In 2010, he won a statuette for the role of a musician in the film “Crazy Heart”, and soon he will again decide on the shelf another award.
The Golden Globe 2019 award ceremony will take place on January 6, 2019.
