Jodie Foster

The Hollywood Foreign Press has not only chosen two funny women to host the Golden Globes (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) but are honoring Jodie Foster with the HFPA board of directors' Cecil B. DeMille Award honoring Foster's impact on the world of entertainment as both actress and director.

At the Golden Globes ceremony on January 13, Foster, who will celebrate her 50th birthday on November 19, will join past winners Robert De Niro (who seemed embarrassed when he accepted the honor), Morgan Freeman, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Charlton Heston was 44 when he was given the award in 1967. She is the first woman in 12 years to receive the award. That was Barbra Streisand. Other women DeMille winners include actresses Lucille Ball, Joan Crawford, Doris Day, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Shirley MacLaine and Elizabeth Taylor.

Foster has earned seven Golden Globe actress nominations so far, including last year's "Carnage." She won Globes--and eventual Oscars-- for "The Accused" and "The Silence of the Lambs."
