Eight-time Golden Globe winner and 15-time nominee, Tom Hanks, will receive the coveted Cecil B. deMille award at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced.
The renowned actor is known for films like Big, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away, and the upcoming release of A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood.
He will accept the honour at Hollywood's Party of the Year scheduled for 5 January 2020.
"The HFPA is proud to bestow the 2020 Cecil B. deMille Award to Tom Hanks," said the HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. "For more than three decades, he's captivated audiences with rich and playful characters that we've grown to love and admire. As compelling as he is on the silver screen, he's equally so behind the camera as a writer, producer, and director. We're honoured to include Mr. Hanks with such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Martin Scorsese, and Barbra Streisand to name a few," he added.
Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. deMille Award is given annually to a talented individual who has made a lasting impact on the film industry. Honourees over the decades include Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Audrey Hepburn, Harrison Ford, Jodie Foster, Sophia Loren, Sidney Poitier, Steven Spielberg, Denzel Washington, Robin Williams, and many more.

The following year, he took home his second Oscar for his unforgettable performance in the lead role of Robert Zemeckis' Forrest Gump. He also won the Golden Globe Award for both films, as well as a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for the latter.

In Hanks's next film, he will be portraying Mr. Fred Rodgers in the A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. Additional upcoming projects include the WWII drama Greyhound, which he also wrote, the post-apocalyptic BIOS, and Director Paul Greengrass' pre-civil war drama News of the World.
His other feature credits include Tom Tykwer's Cloud Atlas, Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, as well as the the animated adventure The Polar Express, which he also executively produced.
