Ellen DeGeneres to Receive Carol Burnett Award at 2020 Golden Globes
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday that Ellen DeGeneres will receive the second-ever Carol Burnett Award at the Golden Globe Awards next year. The only other recipient so far of the award, which honors lifetime achievement in television, is Carol Burnett herself. “From her sitcoms, to stand-up, to becoming a household staple on daytime television, she is a pioneer who has captivated audiences for nearly 25 years with her undeniable charm and wit,” says HFPA president Lorenzo Soria. “In addition to her television success, she’s an advocate and philanthropist, lending her voice to those who don’t have one, and spreading kindness and joy through the power of her platform.” The 2020 Golden Globes will air live on Sunday, January 5, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on NBC.
