What? You’re surprised? 

Remember that great movie Meryl Streep starred in? Oh, you don't know which one of her countless, iconic roles I'm talking about? That's the exact reason the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced she's receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes in January.

One of the arguably best actresses of our time, Streep will join the likes of Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, and Martin Scorsese when she accepts the annual DeMille award, which recognizes "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."

"It's no surprise that the JFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille award," said HFPA president Lorenzo Soria in a statement. "Meryl's enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen. Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage. For shattering gender and age barriers, with all the finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her."

Jimmy Fallon will host the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 8.
