Golden Globes: Oprah Winfrey to receive 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award

Oprah Winfrey is the next luminary who will receive the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Presented annually at the Golden Globes ceremony, the prize recognizes “a talented individual who has made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment,” according to the HFPA.

Winfrey’s honor was announced Wednesday night by actor Morgan Freeman — who won the same prize in 2012 — during an NBC special marking the 75th anniversary of the Globes.

“As a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress, she has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world, making her one of the most respected and admired figures today,” HFPA President Meher Tatna said in a statement.
