Jodie Foster to Receive Golden Globe's Cecille B. DeMille Award

An interesting and surprising choice to say the least, the Hollywood Foreign Press has chosen ta wo-time Oscar Winning and two-time Golden Globe winning actress that overcame the burdens of childhood fame to become one of the most talented and rewarded actresses in recent memory, Jodie Foster. In some ways I think that is is brilliant, she has been working in films for over 30 years, and has recently tried her luck with directing, showing that her talent and career is ever-expanding. And let's face it, I like Jodie Foster a lot. I also think it's great that after so long a woman is receiving this award. But I can't help but look at names like Julie Andrews, Angela Lansbury, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Goldie Hawn, Glenn Close, Meryl Streep, and others and not think that they have waited much longer and have had just as sterling of careers as Foster. Either way, I am still satisfied with the choice, and think that with Foster, Fey, and Poehler, that this year's Golden Globes are going to be fun to watch. The Cecille B. DeMille Award, and the Golden Globes will be presented live January 13th.
