George Clooney Getting Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Golden Globes


George Clooney is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Golden Globes this year. Okay why not? George is an excellent filmmaker and a great humanitarian. Also, he will show up. Last January, Woody Allen skipped the proceedings and sent Diane Keaton. Maybe the Hollywood Foreign Press is giving Clooney the award because they think he’ll invite them to his wedding next weekend. I doubt that will work, although I wouldn’t be surprised if the members with motor skills weren’t in gondolas, ready with their cameras in Venice. Congrats to George, and to NBC, which wants the Golden Globes show stocked with stars.
