A few days ago, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the list of nominees for the Golden Globe, and now it has decided to announce the name of the winner of the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award. As it became known to The Hollywood Reporter, the famous American TV presenter, social activist and actress Oprah Winfrey will receive a valuable prize for a special contribution to the entertainment industry.|
In the mid-80s, Winfrey was already a fairly popular figure on American television, when she had the opportunity to play in the film adaptation of one of her favorite books, Flowers of the Purple Fields. To impress director Steven Spielberg, the aspiring actress sat down to study Konstantin Stanislavsky's system. Oprah's performance in the poignant 1985 drama dazzled critics and earned her Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.
Since the late 80s, Winfrey has also become actively involved in the production of films and TV series. In 2000, her work on the television tape "Tuesdays with Morrie" helped her to win an Emmy award. As for big cinema, as a producer, Oprah took part in the creation of such famous films as "The Big Debaters", "Treasure", "Selma" and "Spices and Passions".
Oprah's charitable work deserves special mention. In 2002, organizers of the 54th Emmy Awards presented her with the Bob Hope Prize for Special Contribution to Humanitarian Action. A decade later, the American film academics followed suit, presenting Winfrey with the Gene Hersholt Prize.
The new award will find Oprah Winfrey at the 75th Golden Globe Awards on January 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
