Golden Globes: Denzel Washington Literally “Speechless” As He Receives The Cecil B. DeMille Award
Denzel Washington received a standing ovation during Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards as he accepted the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award.
Being named “the actor of our generation” by Tom Hanks, who presented the award, Washington, dapper in a black tuxedo, embraced the special moment with his entire family standing right by his side.
“I’m speechless,” he said as he searched aimlessly for his acceptance speech. “I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press for supporting me over the years. They always made me feel like a friend — part of the party.”
The 61-year-old, who was also getting prompted by his family in terms of who to thank, went on to thank his mother for “convincing my father that we need more than 25 watt bulbs, he thought that we could save money.”
Congratulations to Denzel.
