See Who Gets The Golden Globes TV Lifetime Achievement Award In Her Name …First Recipient Ever

For years to come the Carol Burnett Award will have as much seriousness as the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the annual Golden Globes.

After the Hollywood Foreign Press Association publicized last week that it was opening a new category to honor those who had gotten to a level of lifetime achievement in the medium of TV, it has now been proclaimed just who that first recipient will be.

TV veteran Carol Burnett, age85, will be the inaugural honoree and the award will be entitled after her. The news was pronounced on Tuesday’s Today show before a press released was referred out by the HFPA.

In the declaration, the HFPA says that the Carol Burnett Award will be “honoring the highest level of achievement in the medium” of television.

Burnett has collected five Golden Globes and is the most decorated superstar in the television category. She’s had a long career in the business and is perchance best known for her variety show, The Carol Burnett Show, which has a record from 1967 to 1978.

ET spoke with Burnett in August about how she wants to be recollected. “She made me smile. She made me laugh when I was down,” Burnett thought of her legacy.

The 76th annual Golden Globe Awards will go live Jan. 6 on NBC. In the meantime, here’s more of ET’s exclusive interview with Burnett:
