Premiere Of Paramount Pictures' "Flight" - ArrivalsDenzel Washington will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at this year's Golden Globes.

"Washington's long and storied career is earmarked by his countless roles in front and behind the camera," said Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Lorenzo Soria in a statement.

The acclaimed 60-year-old actor has two Golden Globes, as well as two Academy Awards and a Tony, to his name for his performances. He won the best supporting actor trophy for "Glory" in 1989, and the best actor award for "The Hurricane" in 1999. Washington very notably lost out on winning for "Training Day," for which he went on to get an Oscar.

He's been lauded for being one of Hollywood's finest actors, with memorable turns in "Cry Freedom,""Malcolm X," and "Philadelphia."

He is currently filming "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Equalizer 2."

The prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award most recently went to George Clooney last year.
