Jodie Foster to receive Cecil B. DeMille Award at 2013 Golden Globes

Having established herself as one of Hollywood’s best modern actresses, Jodie Foster is to be honoured with the prestige Cecil B. DeMille award at next year’s Golden Globes ceremony.

The two time Oscar-winning actress of renowned films such as Bugsy Malone (1976), Taxi Driver (1976), The Accused (1988) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991) will be awarded her statuette at the awards show which starts on January 13th 2013.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news via an announcement made earlier today at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by Twilight actress Kristen Stewart (Foster’s co-star in Panic Room) and Simon Baker. HFPA president Adia Takla-O’Reilly issued a statement about Foster’s recognition.

“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.”

As well as the other roles already mentioned, Foster has also starred in Freaky Friday (1976), Nell (1994), Flightplan (2005), The Brave One (2007) and last year’s Carnage (2011) which saw her nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical. She also showed her directing potential with last year’s The Beaver which featured herself and Mel Gibson.

She will join an exclusive list of acclaimed actors and actresses who have been honoured with the award including Bette Davis, Walt Disney, Harrison Ford, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese, Frank Sinatra and last year’s recipient Steven Spielberg.

It will be a case of girl power at the 2013 Globes not just for Jodie but for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who are hosting the ceremony.
