Jeff Bridges will be following Oprah’s footsteps at the upcoming Golden Globe ceremony. The Oscar-winning actor is set to receive the honorary Cecil B. DeMille award, for his contributions to the film industry over his six-decade-long career.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association president, Meher Tatna, said they’re delighted to bestow this lifetime achievement award on Bridges. They decided to go with the Big Lebowski star this time around because his brilliant body of work across diverse genres has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide.
“We look forward to celebrating ‘the Dude’ and his remarkable career and philanthropic achievements at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards,” said Tatna.
Jeff Bridges won his first Golden Globe back in 2010, thanks to the lead role in critically acclaimed drama Crazy Heart. He received additional four nominations over the years – most recently for his supporting turn in Hell or High Water from 2016.
Bridges recently appeared in Drew Goddard’s sophomore film Bad Times at the El Royale, alongside Dakota Johnson and Jon Hamm. He’s currently getting ready to play a self-obsessed virtuoso violinist who’s battling life-threatening illness in Reed Morano’s next project.
