Spielberg Named Cecil B. DeMille HonoreeSteven Spielberg will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field” at the 2008 Golden Globe Awards.

Josh Brolin made the announcement Wednesday at The Beverly Hilton, calling Spielberg a “one-of-a-kind talent.”

The 60-year-old director has won six Golden Globes and three Oscars best director and best picture for “Schindler’s List” and best director for “Saving Private Ryan.”

He has also received lifetime achievement honors from the Directors Guild of America, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the American Film Institute and the Kennedy Center.

He is in post-production on “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which will be released next year.

Spielberg will be presented with the Cecil B. DeMille trophy at the 65th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 13. The awards will air live on NBC.

Rumer Willis was named Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the awards ceremony. The honor is traditionally granted to the offspring of a well-known celebrity.

Willis, 19, is the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, so she is “doubly qualified,” said Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Jorge Camara.

“It’s really an amazing opportunity to help recognize people who’ve done great work in this industry,” said Willis, who appears in two films scheduled for release next year.
