The 63-year-old star has had a memorable stint at the Globes, with eight wins out of 15 nominations.
"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is proud to bestow the 2020 Cecil B. DeMille Award to Tom Hanks," said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria.
"For more than three decades, he's captivated audiences with rich and playful characters that we've grown to love and admire. As compelling as he is on the silver screen, he's equally so behind the camera as a writer, producer and director. We're honoured to include Mr. Hanks with such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey,
In the golden age of Hollywood musicals, having your singing voice dubbed was seen as a bit of a cheat: it could be done, in some cases, but chances are you’d be marked down a bit for it. In 1965, George Cukor’s sumptuous version of the Broadway smash My Fair Lady won eight Oscars, including best actor for Rex Harrison, who manfully did his own speak-singing as Henry Higgins; eyebrows were raised, however, when his co-star Audrey Hepburn wasn’t even nominated for best actress.

The HFPA has announced that Hanks, currently sparking Academy Awards buzz for his turn as Mister Rogers in the upcoming “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” will receive the honor at the 77th-annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 5, 2020. The Cecil B. DeMille prize is the equivalent of a lifetime achievement award.
With a clip show, and a likely moving acceptance speech from Hanks, this honorary moment at the Golden Globes ceremony (airing at 5:00 p.m. Pt/8:00 p.m. Et) will provide a nice boost for the 2020 Oscar contender before Academy voting closes on January 7.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is proud to bestow the 2020 Cecil B. DeMille Award to Tom Hanks,” said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. “For more than three decades, he’s

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this past June, the Navarre Film Commission kicked off a traveling exhibition which has been touring Spain over the summer and will present in San Sebastian during this year’s festival.
A tribute to the diversity of locations that exist in Navarra – including castles, deserts, mountains and lush temperate forests – the exhibition shines a spotlight on 18 such locations used by international and domestic film and TV shoots over the past few decades, as well as the productions themselves.
With medieval castles and fortifications a-plenty, Navarre has long been a favorite for historical and fantasy shoots. The most recently recognizable and widely seen, the Bardenas canyon badlands, played host to the Dothraki hordes and their Khalisi in “Game of Thrones.” Artajona

Ealing Studios has a long history of greatness and is one of the finest motion picture studios in Great Britain. While it is most well known for its post-war comedies, several of which starred the inimitable Alec Guinness, the studio site has been active since the silent era. When producer Michael Balcon took it over in the late 1930s and renamed it Ealing, many successful pictures—both dramas and comedies—were made under its banner. Ealing is still operating today and is also the home of the Met Film School London.
The Lavender Hill Mob, released in 1951, is one of Ealing’s jewels in the crown, often cited as the best of the bunch. Director Crighton helmed several of the Ealing pictures, and, at age 77, was finally nominated for a Best Director Oscar for his work on A Fish Called Wanda in 1988 (it was because
You won’t find a greater paradox at the theater in 2019: a movie where strippers are shown as human, breaking the rules seems right and finally, a movie with Jennifer Lopez that isn’t wasting her talents. Hustlers is all that and more.
Not only will you get an educational lesson on moves like “The Peter Pan” and “The Fireman,” but you’ll also be taught a lesson in selflessness, girl power and the power of friendship. That’s where Destiny comes in – both fate and the stripper of the same name. She’s a loner. More than that, she’s a loner with no friends, no steady job and a grandma who needs caring for. So, I guess stripping is the answer?
Okay, so these characters don’t always make the best decisions, but money is money. And before the stock

He told the tale of his own youth, more or less, in “Other Voices, Other Rooms” (1948), the autobiographical novel that put Capote — and his homosexuality — on the map. Holly Golightly, from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1958), is an indelibly chic vagabond-waif, but the main reason we still talk about her is the 1961 movie version that cast Audrey Hepburn as a so-toned-down-she-was-barely-even-the-same-character version of Holly. Capote singlehandedly invented the New Journalism with “In Cold Blood” (1966), but as revolutionary as that book was, the disappointment of it, to me, has always been that

Roman Holiday and Breakfast At Tiffanys are the quintessential Audrey Hepburn movies.
