Meryl Streep getting Cecil B. DeMille award at Golden Globes

NEW YORK -- Eight-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep will add one more award at next year’s ceremony: the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday that Streep will receive its prestigious honor for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” 

The 67-year-old actress has long been a mainstay at the ceremony. She’s been nominated 29 times.

Streep is also in the running this year as a lead actress for her performance in Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins,” which is a solid bet to land a nomination for best actress in a comedy or musical.

Last year, the tribute was given to Denzel Washington. Other recent honorees include Martin Scorsese, George Clooney, Jodie Foster and Morgan Freeman.

The 74th annual Golden Globes will air live on NBC on Jan. 8, 2017 with Jimmy Fallon hosting. Nominations will be announced the morning of Dec. 12.
