Robin Williams to be honoured with Golden Globe (2005)



Story by: Jack Foley

OSCAR-winning actor and talented comedian, Robin Williams, is to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at next year's Golden Globes ceremony.

The star of films such as Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam and Insomnia will be awarded the Cecil B DeMille Award at the annual showpiece ceremony on January 16, 2005, to mark the start of the official Oscars countdown.

The 53-year-old star is being awarded for his 'outstanding contribution to the entertainment field', having been awarded with five previous Golden Globes for film and TV roles, including TV's Mork and Mindy.

He has twice won the best actor in a comedy accolade, for Mrs Doubtfire and The Fisher King, as well as one for his vocal performance in animated film, Aladdin.

He has also appeared in countless other movies, including Patch Adams, One Hour Photo, What Dreams May Come and Dead Poets' Society, and can currently be seen, in American cinemas, in the futuristic thriller, The Final Cut.

Williams was born in Chicago, in 1951, and trained as an actor at Julliard School, in New York, before making a name for himself as a stand-up comedian. Several of his videos are currently available, providing a mesmerising showcase of Williams' comedy genius.

The organisers of this year's Golden Globes ceremony have also announced that Kathryn Eastwood, the 16-year-old daughter of Clint Eastwood, will be this year's Miss Golden Globe, which involves helping to hand out trophies at the glittering event.
