Morgan Freeman to Receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award
The first of Freeman's films I saw theatrically were Glory and Driving Miss Daisy in 1989. I've liked him in everything since (hasn't everyone?). His Oscar win for Million Dollar Baby was actually more along the lines of a "career achievement" win, but it was pretty representative of his work, a solid performance with that voice-over narration that has become a hallmark of his later career.
