    Steven Spielberg gave Philly a shout out on the Golden Globes Sunday night--the city which started him on the road to success.

    And the winner is...

    Those were the highly anticipated words at the 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
    One of the most memorable moments was when Steven Spielberg accepted a lifetime achievement award.

    And apparently, Spielberg got his start in the movie business right here in Philadelphia, where he saw his very first movie. 

    The film he saw was "The Greatest Show on Earth" directed by Cecil B. DeMille.  His father took him to see the film.

    His fate as a director was sealed that night, he said. 
    And, ironically enough, the award he received was called the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
