The red carpet hasn’t been rolled out yet but awards are already being handed out. Kevin Bacon, proving that to give is to receive, will be honored at The Critic’s Choice Awards for his philanthropic work and given the prestigious Joel Siegel Award. Lucky Kevin, on January 15, Meryl Streep will present him with the honor for his organization, SixDegrees.org which plays on the trivia game that bears his name and has helped raise over $3 million dollars over the past three years. True to the essence of the Joel Siegel award ( named for the late “Good Morning America” correspondent) Kevin Bacon “understands that the true value of celebrity is as an enhanced platform to do good works for others” and will join winners from the past few years, Richard Gere and Don Cheadle.
