Ryan Murphy To Be Lauded With Carol Burnett Award At Golden Globes

Five-time Golden Globe winner and 16x nominee Ryan Murphy is receiving the Carol Burnett Award at the 2023 Golden Globes.

The first Carol Burnett Award was granted to Burnett in 2019, and recipients since have included Ellen DeGeneres and Norman Lear. The HFPA Board of Directors selects the honoree based on their body of work and the lasting impact that their television career achievements have had on both the industry and audiences. The trophy is the counterpart to the Cecil B. DeMille Award. 

“Ryan Murphy not only continues to enthrall audiences with his work on some of the most thrilling and exciting series of the century, but also continues to inspire all with his work off the screen,” said Helen Hoehne, President of the HFPA. “His work and storytelling ability throughout different film and television genres have led to highly acclaimed achievements and awards.”
