I was okay with Tom Hanks getting the Kennedy Center Honors, because his body of work goes back the early 80's, but this is way too early. George Clooney has been announced as this year's recipient of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Cecil B. DeMille award, which is normally their trophy for lifetime achievement. Yes, Jodie Foster got it last year, but at least she's been working since she was a kid. This just screams like the HFPA's usual attempt to get a big star like Clooney to show up at their party in a year where he doesn't even have a movie out. Lame. Expect him to to be the target of jokes all night about his upcoming wedding. The Globes are on January 11th, 2015.
