The 68th annual Golden Globe Awards hit a high point when Robert De Niro was given the prestigious Cecil B. Demille Award earlier tonight (January 16).
The “Raging Bull” actor received his trophy from Matt Damon, who admitted he hadn’t heard of DeNiro until he was recruited to star in his film “The Good Shepherd.”
From there, the audience was treated to a 3-minute montage of some of DeNiro’s films selected from his four-decades-long career.
Robert also noted that he’d be happy to present Mr. Damon with his own Demille award when the time comes.
