Veteran actress Jane Fonda will receive the Cecil B DeMille Award during the ceremony on 28 February, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced last Tuesday. A member of one of America’s most distinguished acting families, Fonda has captivated and inspired fans along with critics in such films as Klute and Coming Home.
In a statement, HFPA President Ali Sar applauded the Golden Globe winner’s decorated career and her “unrelenting activism.”
“Her undeniable talent has gained her the highest level of recognition,” Sar said of Fonda. “While her professional life has taken many turns, her unwavering commitment to evoking change has remained.”
The DeMille Award is given annually to an “individual who has made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment."
