Eight-time Golden Globe winner, and legit screen queen, Meryl Streep will receive the Cecil B. DeMille award at next year's ceremony.
Recent recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award include Denzel Washington, George Clooney (how? why?), Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.
In addition to the (literally) hundreds of awards she has received, Streep has 3 Oscars (out of a record 19 nominations), 2 Emmys, 2 SAGs, 2 BAFTAs, and Best Actress trophies from the Berlin and Cannes Film Festivals. In additional to her 8 GG wins, she's been nominated 29 times - more than any actor.
The video montages of these DeMille retrospectives are particularly moving / spine-tingly (see Jodie Foster's, Martin Scorsese's, Denzel Washington's, etc...)
