Kristen at the ‘Cecil B. DeMille Award’ announcement

Actor, director and producer Jodie Foster will receive the Cecil B. de Mille for lifetime achievement at the 70th Golden Globe Awards. Announcing this year’s choice at a press conference, HFPA president Dr. Aida Takla O’Reilly said “Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career. Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She’s truly one of a kind.”

Kristen Stewart, star of Walter Salles’ On the Road and of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II, and two-time Golden Globe nominee Simon Baker, star of the TV series The Mentalist, were presenters at the event. Foster is a two time Golden Globe winner, both as best actress in a motion picture-drama: first in 1989, for The Accused, and then in 1992 for The Silence of the Lambs. In addition, Foster was nominated five other times, the most recent one  in 2011  for best actress in a comedy or musical for Carnage.
