Ellen DeGeneres to receive special award at Golden Globes 2020
LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed US-based TV star Ellen DeGeneres will get a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes next year recognizing her 25-year career on U.S. television, organizers said on Monday (yesterday).
“In addition to her television success, she’s an advocate and philanthropist, lending her voice to those who don’t have one, and spreading kindness and joy through the power of her platform,” said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) which hands out the Golden Globes .
DeGeneres is already a recipient of two of the highest honours in the United States – the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
In addition to her television work, DeGeneres lent her voice to the neurotic Pacific blue tang fish named Dory in the animated movies “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory.”
The Carol Burnett award was set up by the HFPA to recognize the new Golden Age of television in the United States, where more than 500 scripted shows a year are broadcast on traditional and streaming platforms.
The Golden Globes awards ceremony for film and television will take place in Beverly Hills on Jan. 5 2020.
