LOS ANGELES (AP) — The organizers of the Golden Globe Awards say they will honor Woody Allen for his contributions to filmmaking.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Friday that Allen will receive the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award.
A tribute to the 77-year-old actor, writer and director will be included in the 71st annual Golden Globe ceremony set for Jan. 12. Morgan Freeman and Martin Scorsese are among the previous recipients.
Allen’s much-honored films include “Annie Hall,” ”Hannah and Her Sisters” and “Midnight in Paris,” which won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for its screenplay last year.
