Martin Scorsese To Be Honored With Cecil B. DeMille Award

From the Official

Martin Scorsese, the director of the Tom Cruise movie ‘The Color of Money,’ is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award!

Variety reports that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will bestow the filmmaker with its highest honor, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, at the 67th Annual Golden Globes Awards show on January 17, 2010.

The award, named after the famed filmmaker, recognizes outstanding achievement in entertainment. In the past, Scorsese has earned an Academy Award for Best Director for his film ‘The Departed’ (which also won Best Picture), as well as two Golden Globe Awards for that movie and ‘Gangs of New York.’ He’s been nominated for four other Golden Globes for ‘Raging Bull,’ ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Age of Innocence,’ and ‘Casino.’

Last year, Steven Spielberg (he worked with Tom on ‘Minority Report‘) won the award — in fact, Scorsese presented him with the award. Other notable Hollywood folk who have been honored in the recent past include Warren Beatty, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Williams, and Michael Douglas. I wonder if Spielberg will return the favor by being the presenter for Scorsese? ;)

Fun Film Fact:
Scorsese’s ‘Gangs of New York’ stars two-time Tom Cruise co-star Cameron Diaz! She starred with him in ‘Vanilla Sky‘ before teaming up for their current project, ‘Knight & Day.’
