Golden Globe awards are presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for excellence in film and television. Some 90 members of the HFPA, who maintain a permanent, primary residence in Southern California, vote for outstanding achievement in acting and directing of both dramas and comedies The Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement in Motion Pictures award is also given out each year.The awards were first given out in 1944, and they have come to be considered a harbinger of Oscar winners.
In 1959 she scored the biggest hit of her career starring alongside Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in Billy Wilder's comedy "Some Like It Hot". Her behavior on the set was famously difficult. After shooting finished, Wilder publicly blasted Monroe. Soon, however, Wilder's attitude softened, and he hailed her a great comedienne. Some Like It Hot is consistently rated as one of the best films ever made. Monroe's performance as the sweet and sensitive Sugar Kane earned her a Golden Globe for best actress in musical or comedy.
