Cecil B. DeMille Award To Robert De Niro

Actor/director/producer Robert De Niro will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 68th Golden Globes. The two-time Academy Award winner was voted the honor by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

De Niro’s career includes a collaboration with director Martin Scorsese. ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, ‘The King of Comedy’ and ‘Goodfellas’ are the most notable of their eight films. As one of the key actors of the ‘New Hollywood’ movement, De Niro’s naturalistic style saw him take on art roles like Brian DePalma’s ‘Hi, Mom!’ to anti-war pictures such as Michael Ciminio’s “The Deer Hunter.”


  1. Robert De Niro is a worthy choice for the DeMille award. He may well be America’s greatest actor over the past several decades, and his work with Tribeca and humanitarian organizations adds to his accomplishments as a filmmaker.

    Enjoy the Golden Globes, Robert De Niro!

      1. Well, okay, maybe 10 years ago then… I mean, it isn’t the drivel he made for Milleneum or the dumb thrillers that suddenly merited the tip o’ the hat now, was it? It was the Scorsese films, Deer Hunter, his own directorial efforts, and Tribeca… Oh, sorry, and the Amex commercials, how could we forget those!?!


  2. I think people need to stop hating on DeNiro. Sure not all of his recent films have been great. But I think his ability to carry a successful comedy franchise like “Meet the Parents” just adds to his overall, versatile body of work. He is a true craftsman in every sense of the word. I mean, his amazing “Godfather II” performance warrants this award alone. Congrats Bob!

    1. I wasn’t hating – I was actually being serious when I cited his Rupert Pupkin and The Plumber characters. Underrated, much?
