Tom Hanks, one of Hollywood’s most beloved actors, is to add another honor to his name with a lifetime achievement award from the organizers of the Golden Globe awards.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) said on Tuesday it would present the prolific actor and producer with its Cecil B DeMille award at the Golden Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills on January 5.

The boyish-looking Hanks, now 63, made his movie breakthrough in Big in 1988, playing a teenager who wakes up to find himself in the body of an adult.

He went on to win back-to-back Oscars and Golden Globes in 1994 and 1995 for his roles in AIDS drama Philadelphia and comedy Forrest Gump.

“For more than three decades, he’s captivated audiences with rich and playful characters that we’ve grown to love and admire,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said in a statement.

“As compelling as he is on the silver screen, he’s equally so behind the camera as a writer, producer and director.”

Hanks’ next movie appearance will be in November as the much loved U.S. children’s television host Mister Rogers, in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

He also starred in more than 80 other movies, including Sleepless in Seattle, and Private Ryan and was the voice of cowboy Woody in the Toy Story animated movie franchise.

The Cecil B DeMille award is given annually to an actor, director or producer who has made a lasting impact on the film industry. Past recipients include Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bridges and Harrison Ford.
