Oprah Winfrey can now add one more honor to her lifetime slew of accolades. The media mogul will be receiving the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is given “to a talented individual who has made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment.” This will make Winfrey the first black woman to receive the honor, and the 15th woman since the award’s conception in 1952.
Oprah expressed her gratitude via Twitter on Wednesday:
“As a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress, she has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world, making her one of the most respected and admired figures today,” president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Meher Tatna said in a statement. “For generations, Oprah has celebrated strong female characters on and off screen, and has been a role model for women and young girls for decades.”
Past honorees include Denzel Washington, Barbra Streisand, Meryl Streep, Sidney Poitier, George Clooney, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg.
The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards is set to air Jan. 7 on NBC.
