Golden Globes announces a new lifetime achievement award for TV
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will hand out its first-ever lifetime achievement award in TV next month, but its official name has yet to be revealed. “Equivalent to its film accolade counterpart, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, this new annual award will honor TV’s biggest names and brightest talents,” said Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna. “Honorees will be selected based on their outstanding accomplishments, as well as the impact and influence that their television career has had on the industry and audiences. The importance of this presentation is underscored by the fact that this is the first special achievement award of its kind since the DeMille Award was originally presented in 1952.”
