Tom Hanks to Receive Cecil B. DeMille Award at Golden Globes
Tom Hanks will be receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award, a very special honor at the 2020 Golden Globes.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is proud to bestow the 2020 Cecil B. DeMille Award to Tom Hanks,” Lorenzo Soria, HFPA President, said in a statement. “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.”
Hanks, the acclaimed 63-year-old actor will be getting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the prestigious ceremony, celebrating his contributions to film and television.
Hanks recently discussed his upcoming role as the iconic Mr. Rogers. and how Mr. Rogers differs from the numerous other real-life men he’s portrayed.
He said what those individuals “had was a moment in which they were trying to achieve something that was of stellar importance.”
“Certainly Walt Disney, Charlie Wilson, when I played Charlie Wilson, and a number of other real people,” he explained of his roles in Saving Mr. Banks and Charlie Wilson’s War. “I think Mr. Fred Rogers is the first person I’ve played that is not undergoing the great crisis of their business or their lives.”
Hanks added, “Walt Disney wanted to get a movie made [in Saving Mr. Banks], Sully had to save 156 people [in Sully], Charlie Wilson’s War, he wanted to go to bat with the Soviet Union. Mr. Rogers doesn’t want anything, except maybe for people to understand themselves and the world a little bit better, so that’s a different kind of gig.”
