The multiple award winner brought down the house when he brought his whole family onstage to accept his Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the 73rd annual Golden Globes.
Amidst all of the show’s booze and bleeped-out cursing, it was a moment that was real, touching, and as it should be. Washington’s wife of many years, Pauletta, and the couple’s children John David (31), Katia (28), and Olivia (24) all joined him. Another son, Malcolm (24), wasn’t present, as he’s in the midst of finishing his thesis at AFI. The best part? When Pauletta asked the American gangster if he needed his glasses—not once, but twice brought the #GoldenGlobes back to what it was meant to be.
