Arguably the most influential black woman in the world, Oprah Winfrey is set to be honoured with a Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The award will be presented to her by Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Oprah, who is the chairman and CEO of her Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), has been described by the President Meher Tatna as a worthy role model for women.

Tatna said in a statement that she will be receiving this award for the long years she has “celebrated strong female characters on and off screen, and has been a role model for women and young girls for decade.”

“As a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress, she has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world, making her one of the most respected and admired figures today.

“Holding titles such as Chairman, CEO and Founder, Oprah is one of the most influential women of our time, and this honor is well deserved especially in this 75th anniversary year of the Golden Globe Awards.”
