The three-time Golden Globe winner will be feted on January 11, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Clooney has a whopping 13 noms from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association under his belt, as well as Academy Awards for "Argo," which he produced, and his supporting turn in "Syriana."
Earlier this year, he directed, starred in and produced — via his company Smokehouse — WWII caper "The Monuments Men" for Sony Pictures Classics. Among his upcoming roles in 2015 is the lead in the Coens’ showbiz satire "Hail, Caesar!"
Past recipients of the venerable Cecil B. DeMille prize include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.
Golden Globe nominations will be announced December 11.
