NEW YORK (AP) — Eight-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep will add one more award at this year’s Globes: the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday that Streep will receive its prestigious honor for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” The 67-year-old actress has long been a mainstay at the ceremony. She’s been nominated 29 times.

Streep is also in the running this year. Her performance in Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins” is a good bet to land a nomination for best actress in a comedy or musical.

The 64-year-old tribute was given last year to Denzel Washington. Other recent honorees include Martin Scorsese, George Clooney, Jodie Foster and Morgan Freeman.
