Robert De Niro will be honored at next January's Golden Globe Awards telecast with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry.
Believe it or not, De Niro has been in the biz for almost 50 years and has been featured in over 70 films! Now that’s impressive!
Robert has previously received nominations for eight Golden Globe Awards during his career, but the Cecil B. DeMille Award is the ultimate honor.
Robert has had a hugely successful career, gaining early acclaim for his intense and emotionally charged roles as gangsters and outsiders in films such as ‘Mean Streets’, ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘The Godfather: Part II’ in the late 70s. He won his first Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the latter role, before scooping the coveted Best Actor Oscar in 1980 for his portrayal of boxer Jake LaMotta in ‘Raging Bull’.
Robert’s next film ‘Little Fockers’ is in cinemas from December 22.
