Jeff Bridges is set to be recognized for his incredible career.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday, according to the Hollywood Reporter, that the 69-year-old actor will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his achievements in entertainment at the 76th annual Golden Globes.
Bridges’ career has spanned a whopping seven decades, beginning in the late 1950s as a child actor.
He has starred in a range of notable films, including, “The Last Picture Show”, “Heaven’s Gate”, “The Fisher King”, “The Big Lebowski”, “True Grit”, and “Hell or High Water”.
In 2010, Bridges won his first Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in “Crazy Heart”. He also won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama at the Golden Globes for his role in the film.
Bridges was also nominated for Golden Globes for his performances in 1984’s “Starman”, 1991’s “The Fisher King”, 2000’s “The Contender”, and 2016’s “Hell or High Water”.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is delighted to bestow the 2019 Cecil B. DeMille Award on Jeff Bridges. Bridges’ brilliant body of work across diverse genres has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide for more than six decades. We look forward to celebrating ‘the Dude’ and his remarkable career and philanthropic achievements at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards,” the HFPA said in a statement to THR.
