Golden Globes to honour Glee creator Ryan Murphy with TV award

Television writer and producer Ryan Murphy, creator of hits from Glee to 9-1-1 and American Horror Story, will receive a lifetime achievement honour at Hollywood’s Golden Globes ceremony next month.

Murphy’s appearance will add another big name to the Jan 10 lineup as organisers try to rebound from a diversity and ethics scandal.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group that votes on the Golden Globes, said it would celebrate Murphy’s contributions to television with its fourth Carol Burnett Award. Previous honourees were Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres and Norman Lear.

Murphy, 57, won fans for his musical TV series Glee from 2009 to 2015. His other credits include anthology series American Horror Story, drama series 9-1-1 and Pose, a show that broke ground with a large transgender cast.

The HFPA also said this week it would honour comedian Eddie Murphy with the Cecil B DeMille award, a lifetime achievement award for film work, at the January ceremony.
