Denzel Washington will receive the 2016 Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards.
The two-time Golden Globe winner has been nominated for seven Golden Globes across two categories by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which hosts the annual awards show honoring achievment in film and television.
"Washington's long and storied career is earmarked by his countless roles in front and behind the camera," Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. President Lorenzo Soria said Monday in a statement. "It is the HFPA's privilege to honor his contributions to the entertainment industry with the Cecil B. DeMille Award."
