The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. will bestow its highest honor, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, on Martin Scorsese at the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 17.
The award recognizes “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field”; the most recent recipients have been Steven Spielberg, Warren Beatty, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Williams and Michael Douglas.
Scorsese presented the award to Spielberg at the Golden Globes broadcast in January.
An Oscar winner for directing “The Departed,” Scorsese also has picked up two Golden Globes — for directing “Departed” and “Gangs of New York” — and has five additional Globe noms.
His next film, “Shutter Island,” will be released Feb. 19 by Paramount.
NBC will be broadcast the Globes from the Beverly Hilton; Ricky Gervais is the host.
Nominations will be announced Dec. 15.
