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

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.
