Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks will be honoured with the prestigious Cecil B. deMille Award at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards in January.
The announcement was made by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Tuesday.
The 63-year-old star has had a memorable stint at the Globes, with eight wins out of 15 nominations.
"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is proud to bestow the 2020 Cecil B. DeMille Award to Tom Hanks", said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria.
"For more than three decades, he's captivated audiences with rich and playful characters that we've grown to love and admire. As compelling as he is on the silver screen, he's equally so behind the camera as a writer, producer and director. We're honoured to include Mr. Hanks with such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Martin Scorsese, and Barbra Streisand to name a few" Soria added.
Hanks will accept the honour on January 5, 2020.
