Jeff Bridges will be the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes next month. Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna said in a statement that the actor/ director/producer, who turned 69 earlier this month, is being honored for his “brilliant body of work across diverse genres” that “has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide for more than six decades.”
Bridges has been nominated as an actor for a Golden Globe four times, winning once for his role as a down-and-out country music star in 2009’s Crazy Heart, for which he also received the best actor Academy Award.
Bridges is also best-known for roles in films including The Last Picture Show, Starman, The Fabulous Baker Boys, The Fisher King, and The Big Lebowski. More recently he delivered critically acclaimed performances in movies including True Grit and Hell or High Water, receiving Oscar nominations for his work in both, and a Golden Globe nod for the latter.
The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on NBC Sunday, January 6 beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET.
