Tom Hanks Has Even More Golden Globe Honors
Tom Hanks has been nominated nine times for Golden Globe Honors while winning the category four times. He won for Cast Away (2000), Forrest Gump (1994), Philadelphia (1993), and Big (1998)!
The talented actor will now add another award to his collection. Come January 2020, Hanks will take home the prestigious Cecil B DeMille award. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the Golden Globes since 1943, said they had “grown to love and admire” Hanks.
HFPA president Lorenzo Soria went on to say, “For more than three decades, he’s captivated audiences with rich and playful characters.” Hanks has been apart of some iconic films, from Splash to Apollo 13.
He goes on to praise not only Hanks’ acting credentials, but also his work as a writer, producer, and even director. It seems Tom Hanks can do a lot of different aspects of filmmaking and he deserves all the recognition in the world!
