The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has chosen Woody Allen to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards.

The honor is given every year to someone who has “made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment,” and Allen, 77, surely fits the bill.

The prolific actor/writer/director has churned out over 45 films in his 48-year career, including “Annie Hall,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Match Point,” “Midnight in Paris” and, most recently, “Blue Jasmine.”

“There is no one more worthy of this award than Woody Allen,” said Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “His contributions to filmmaking have been phenomenal and he truly is an international treasure.”

Allen will be joining a very esteemed club — and one with pretty decent Jewish representation. Others to have received the award are Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Barbra Streisand and Michael Douglas.

The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards will air live Jan. 12.
