Foster earns lifetime-achievement honor at Globes
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jodie Foster is adding a new trophy to her collection _ a lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes.
Foster, 49, is a two-time Globes and Academy Award winner. She was honored with leading actress trophies at both ceremonies for 1991’s “The Silence of the Lambs” and 1988’s “The Accused,” which she won in a three-way tie at the Globes with Sigourney Weaver for “Gorillas in the Mist” and Shirley MacLaine for “Madame Sousatzka.”
DeMille Award winners are chosen by the board of directors for the foreign press group. It includes about 90 reporters who cover Hollywood for overseas outlets.
“Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career,” said HFPA president Aida Takla-O’Reilly. “Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She’s truly one of a kind.”
Foster has appeared in more than 40 films. She began her career at 3 years old, starring in a Coppertone commercial, and went on to act in such movies as “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” “Taxi Driver,” “Nell,” “The Brave One” and “Carnage.” She also directed the films “Little Man Tate,” “Home for the Holidays” and “The Beaver.” Her next role is as a government official in director Neil Blomkamp’s sci-fi saga “Elysium” with Matt Damon.
The announcement was made Thursday by Takla-O’Reilly, “The Mentalist” star Simon Baker and Kristen Stewart, who appeared with Foster in 2002’s “The Panic Room.”
The DeMille Award went to Morgan Freeman earlier this year. Past winners include Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood.
The Globes, Hollywood’s second-biggest movie awards after the Oscars, will air live on NBC next year.
