Hackman on Globe Awards

Gene Hackman will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year's Golden Globe Awards.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the ceremony, announced that the star of "The Conversation" and "Crimson Tide" will receive the honorary award for his career of nearly 80 films.

Hackman, 72, won a supporting-actor Oscar for 1992's "Unforgiven" and a best-actor Oscar for 1971's "The French Connection." He also has won Golden Globe Awards for those films and for last year's "The Royal Tenenbaums."

The DeMille award will be presented at the 60th annual Golden Globe banquet Jan. 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The event will air live on NBC.

Previous honorees include Harrison Ford, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, Shirley MacLaine, Jack Nicholson, Sean Connery and Sophia Loren.

"Star Dates" on E!

Would you like to go on a blind date with Vicki from "The Love Boat?" How about Screech from "Saved by the Bell?"

Or maybe you'd prefer to sit back and watch them and other TV has-beens squirm as cameras follow them around all night?

Here's your chance: "Star Dates," the latest reality show from E! Entertainment Television, is scheduled to debut at 10:30 p.m. Dec. 15.

The series combines the fly-on-the-wall allure of shows like "Blind Date" with the stars-in-awkward-situations element of "Celebrity Fear Factor."

"All cameras -- and eyes -- are on the stars as they reveal all the pre-date trepidation, sweaty palms and pounding hearts as they, just like us, ponder whether the signal has been given to kiss their dates goodnight!" a statement announcing the show said.

Besides "The Love Boat's" Jill Whelan and "Saved by the Bell's" Dustin Diamond, celebrities expected to take part include Phyllis Diller, Gary Coleman from "Diff'rent Strokes" and Kim Fields from "The Facts of Life."
