Actor and comedian Eddie Murphy will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 80th Golden Globes.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the news on Wednesday (Dec. 15).

“We’re honored to present this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award to the iconic and highly esteemed Mr. Eddie Murphy,” HFPA President Helen Hoehne said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be celebrating the lasting impact on film and television that his career — in front of and behind the camera — has had through the decades.”

The 61-year-old performer will accept the award — which is given to honor “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” according to the HFPA —Tuesday, Jan. 10, at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards Ceremony.

Hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the event will be televised live (5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET) on NBC and available for streaming on Peacock.

Murphy has previously been nominated six times for a Globe. His only win came in 2007 for his inspired and critically acclaimed performance as James (Jimmy) "Thunder" Early in the movie musical "Dreamgirls."
