LOS ANGELES (AP) — George Clooney is sure to take home a trophy at next year's Golden Globe Awards.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday that the 53-year-old entertainer and activist will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the ceremony on Jan. 11, 2015.
The award is presented annually to an individual who's made "an incredible impact on the world of entertainment."
Association president Theo Kingma cited Clooney's achievements on both sides of the camera and his humanitarian efforts around the world.
Clooney has won two Oscars and four Golden Globes. He's also been recognized for his efforts to bring attention to atrocities in Darfur and for producing the "Help Haiti Now" telethon to raise money after the devastating earthquake there in 2010.
