Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is to be honoured with the Cecil B DeMille award for lifetime achievement at the 2010 Golden Globes, it has been announced.
The Taxi Driver helmer will receive the accolade at the Globes ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles on January 17th.
Scorsese, 67, follows the likes of Steven Spielberg, Warren Beatty, Anthony Hopkins and Michael Douglas in receiving the Cecil B DeMille award.
Actress Vera Farmiga, who worked with Scorsese on the 2006 Oscar winner The Departed, announced the lifetime achievement honour for the director at a Los Angeles press conference on Thursday.
"He has the power to rouse a crowd and bring them along on his holy mission," she said.
"He considers it holy work, and cinema is his shrine. And he instils in the actors, in the crew, and everybody around him just what a powerful tool it is."
The nominations for the Golden Globes, which will be hosted by British comic Ricky Gervais, will be revealed on December 15th.
