Read Jane Fonda’s full Golden Globes 2021 speech for Cecil B. DeMille Award

In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award on at the 2021 Golden Globes Sunday evening, Jane Fonda called for more inclusion in Hollywood’s storytelling ranks. In her video conferenced acceptance speech, she spoke of the importance of storytelling, citing specific examples from major releases on film and TV last year. “But,” she added, “there’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry. The story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out. It’s about who’s offered a seat at the table and who was kept out of the rooms where decisions are made. So that’s all of us, including all the groups who decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards.

Jane Fonda Reflects on Acting and Activism on Eve of Cecil B. DeMille Award

It sounds like a punchline, but it’s true: Jane Fonda has so many awards, they once broke a shelf. It was during her marriage to Ted Turner; prior to that she never really had her accolades, which include two Academy Awards, two BAFTAs, seven Golden Globes and a Primetime Emmy Award, on display. But then she moved in with Turner and notes, “Ted’s office is about the size of a football field. And it’s lined with trophies from his sailing. And it really struck me: he’s not ashamed of putting out all his trophies. I mean, literally, there were thousands.”

Will Sophia Loren win her first competitive Golden Globe 26 years after Cecil B. DeMille honors?

A film acting career that spans seven decades is so extremely rare that it’s almost unheard of, but 86-year-old Sophia Loren is living proof that it is possible. Since her early days as an extra, the Italian screen legend has stunned audiences all over the world with her timeless beauty as well as her remarkable talent, for which she has been consistently rewarded. In 1995, she was chosen as the 10th female recipient of the Golden Globes’ highest honor: the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Though she has a total of five Globe wins to her name, she has still never prevailed in a competitive category – but, that could change this year.

Jane Fonda at the Golden Globes: From Most Promising Newcomer to Cecil B. DeMille honoree

At the 1962 Golden Globes ceremony, Judy Garland became the first woman to be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement, after 10 men had received it before her. That same year, 24-year-old Jane Fonda was named one of three recipients of the now retired Most Promising Female Newcomer award for her debut in Joshua Logan’s “Tall Story.” Over the six decades since, Fonda has become one of the most lauded actresses in the history of the Golden Globes. At age 83, she is set to further solidify that distinction, having now been chosen as the newest and 16th female recipient of the DeMille award.
