Robert De Niro to receive lifetime achievement award

The Golden Globes are coming around again in January, and even if there’s no other reason to watch, you should definitely tune in to see two things: Ricky Gervais hosting, and Robert De Niro collecting a lifetime achievement award, joining long-time pals Al Pacino and Martin Scorsese.

De Niro is without a doubt one of the finest actors in the history of film, and with the presentation of the award we’re bound to be treated to a fantastic montage of his greatest cinematic moments.  Also, Ricky Gervais tends to be pretty unpredictable and spontaneous, so even if the awards end up being kind of boring, the in between bits are likely to be pretty interesting.
