Adding to Spielberg's list

HFPA's DeMille nod is latest honor

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. will honor Steven Spielberg with its Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 65th annual Golden Globes.

The award — hailing the director for his outstanding contribution in the field of entertainment — was announced Wednesday by Josh Brolin at a news conference at the Beverly Hilton.

Spielberg has won six Golden Globes, including best director for "Saving Private Ryan" and best motion picture for "Schindler's List," and has garnered an additional 12 nominations during a career that has spanned close to 40 years.

A co-founder of DreamWorks with Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, he is in postproduction on "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," starring Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBeouf.

Spielberg will receive his award Jan. 13 during the Golden Globes ceremony held at the Beverly Hilton.

Additionally on Wednesday, the HFPA named Rumer Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, to serve as Miss Golden Globe.
