Jodie Foster will receive the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille Award
"Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career," says Aida Takla O'Reilly, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. "Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She's truly one of a kind."
Foster is a two-time Golden Globe winner, for "The Accused" and "The Silence of the Lambs," and has been nominated five other times. She's also directed a handful of features (most recently "The Beaver") and produced several others through her company, Egg Pictures.
