Film review: The Giver
Jeff Bridges may have once been considered as one of Hollywoods most underappreciated actors, but next months Golden Globe Awards will showcase his life and illustrious career by bestowing him one of its highest honors.
Bridges will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award during the 76th annual awards ceremony on January 6, 2019, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced on Monday. The actor has been praised for starring in films including Crazy Heart, True Grit, Hell or High Water and The Big Lebowski, which became a cult classic thanks to his nonchalant, knit-sweater wearing character Jeffrey The Dude Lebowski.
HFPA President Meher Tatna said in a statement the Golden Globe winner has “captured hearts and minds” of audiences worldwide.
Bridges, 69, won a Globe in 2010 for best actor role in Crazy Heart, when he remarked at the time during his acceptance speech about “chipping away” at his underappreciated status. He went on to win an Academy Award that year, and also received previous Globe nominations for his performances in Starman, The Fisher King, Contender and Hell or High Water.
The DeMille Award is given annually to an “individual who has made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment.” Past recipients include Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster, Barbra Streisand, Sidney Poitier and Lucille Ball.
The Globes next year is also adding the Carol Burnett Award, an accolade that focuses on life achievement in television. The inaugural award will go to the 85-year-old Burnett, a five-time winner at the Globes.
