Warren Beatty has been chosen to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement. It will be given to him on January 15, 2007 during the 64th annual Golden Globe Awards. The DeMille awardee is chosen by the Board of Directors of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The 69 year old actor has already received five Golden Globes including:
Best actor in a comedy – Heaven Can Wait
Best producer of a comedy or musical (twice) – Heaven Can Wait and Bugsy
Best Director – Reds
Most Promising Newcomer for 1962
Previous recipients of this award include Michael Douglas in 2004, Harrison Ford in 2002, Gene Hackman in 2003, Anthony Hopkins in 2006, Barbra Streisand in 2000 and Robin Williams in 2005.
The nominees for the 64th Golden Globe Awards won’t be announced until Thursday, Dec 14, 2006. NBC will be broadcasting the Award ceremony from the Beverly Hilton’s ballroom in January.
Though no nominees have been confirmed yet, a lot of people feel that a possible recipient of a Golden Globe is Annette Bening, Warren Beatty’s wife. Her performance as the lead in Running With Scissors has generated quite a buzz. It will be nice if both husband and wife bring home awards.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening met in 1991, on the set of Bugsy. They married the year later. Now they have 4 kids. Their eldest, Kathlyn is 14. Their son Benjamin is 12. The younger girls are Isabel who is 9 and Ella who is 6.
