DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film since 1952, and this year, the HFPA is adding the Carol Burnett Award as its TV equivalent. Burnett, 85, has won five TV Golden Globes—a record, People reports. As for the Cecil B. DeMille Award, this year's recipient is Jeff Bridges, Newsweek reports.
