Robert De Niro to Receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the recipient for this year's Cecil B. DeMille Award: Robert De Niro. After a two year director hiatus from actors (Scorsese, Spielberg) the HFPA is getting back to honoring the actors.  The press release was posted early this morning on the HFPA website... glad they are prompt (even though it's PST, sorry New York). 

De Niro was certainly among the most probable picks (especially given that Scorsese received it last year), and, of course, deserving. They're so many great De Niro performances: The Godfather, Part IITaxi DriverRaging BullThe King of Comedy; GoodfellasCape FearJackie Brown; Analyze This; Meet the Parents; and Machete... to name a few.
