Golden Globes ceremony benches the honorary Cecil B. DeMille and Carol Burnett Awards
Sunday's ceremony will be missing the two lifetime achievement awards: the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which honors film, and the Carol Burnett Award, which honors TV. Last year, Eddie Murphy and Ryan Murphy were the respective recipients of the DeMille and Burnett awards. According to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, the awards will "not be presented this year but expected to return in the future. The development comes as the Globes over the past 12 months changed ownership and status, becoming a for-profit organization owned by Deadline parent PMC along with show producer Dick Clark Prods. in a joint venture with Eldridge; their voting body, expanding to 300 members representing 76 countries; and network, moving to CBS (streaming on Paramount+) after decades on NBC." The news comes as the Globes has added two new categories this year: Cinematic and Box Office Achievement and Best Performance By a Stand-Up Comic On Television. The Cecile B. DeMille Award has been handed out every year since 1952, except for in 1976, 2008 (due to the writers' strike) and in 2022 (due to a lack of a network). This is the second time since the Carol Burnett Award was launched in 2019 that the honor will not be handed out after the ceremony was canceled in 2022. ALSO: Cecil B. DeMille Award winner Oprah Winfrey is among the new batch of Golden Globes presenters announced today.
