The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced it will give its prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award to Barbra Streisand at the Jan. 23 Golden Globe Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills. In a statement yesterday, Streisand said, ”I’m very grateful to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association who have been so supportive of me throughout my career.” The award is given for ”outstanding contribution to the entertainment field.” With three Golden Globes, Streisand is the most honored entertainer by the HFPA. She nabbed one as director of ”Yentl,” and two for best actress for ”Funny Girl” and ”Star Is Born.” Jack Nicholson, Shirley MacLaine and Robert Redford are past recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
