Michael Douglas to receive Golden Globe
Tue 18 November, 2003 03:46

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Douglas, Oscar-winning star of "Wall Street," son of Kirk Douglas and husband of Catherine Zeta-Jones, will receive an honorary Golden Globe award for his work in the entertainment industry, the awards' sponsor says.

The Golden Globes Awards, presented by the roughly 90-member Hollywood Foreign Press Association, is among the most watched celebrity honours shows in Hollywood during the film industry's annual awards season starting in late December.

The upcoming telecast will take place on January 25, about one month before the February 29 Oscars, which are the film industry's top honours.

Douglas has won two Oscars, one for producing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1975, and one for acting in "Wall Street" in 1987. His wife won last year's best supporting actress Oscar for her work in "Chicago" and his father received an honorary Oscar in 1995.

Douglas has also won two Golden Globes, one for acting in a drama for "Wall Street" and one for producing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."

At the January ceremony, Douglas will be given the group's Cecil B. DeMille Award for his "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field."

The award is named for legendary director and producer of films like "The Ten Commandments" (1956) and "The Greatest Show on Earth" (1952), and past winners include Harrison Ford, Barbra Streisand and Jack Nicholson.

In addition, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said 17-year-old Lily Costner, daughter of actor Kevin Costner, will be Miss Golden Globe at the upcoming ceremony.

Traditionally, the group selects a celebrity's child to be Miss Golden Globe and assist during the show. Past recipients include Laura Dern, daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, and Melanie Griffith, daughter of Tippi Hedren.
