Morgan Freeman will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for contribution to entertainment at next year's Golden Globes.

The 74-year-old actor - best known for roles in 'Driving Miss Daisy', 'Million Dollar Baby' and 'Invictus', where he played Nelson Mandela - will be honoured with the prize during the ceremony on January 15, 2012.

The accolade, the Golden Globes' version of a lifetime achievement award, has previously been given to Steven Spielberg, Robert DeNiro and Warren Beatty.

Morgan - known for his deep voice and tall stature - won a Golden Globe in 1989 for playing chauffer Hoke Colburn in 'Driving Miss Daisy', and picked up an Oscar for the part of Eddie in 2004's 'Million Dollar Baby', which also starred Hilary Swank and Clint Eastwood.

Morgan most recently starred as Dr. Cameron McCarthy in surprise hit 'Dolphin Tale' and will next be seen in Batman film 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle'.
