Jodie Foster made a triumphant and heartwarming return to the Golden Globes this year as she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film 'The Mauritanian' (2020).
Video-calling in to the event, Foster sat with her dog and her wife Alexandra Hedison as she delivered her authentically spontaneous speech which began with, "I just never expected to ever be here again." It called upon her last time at the awards show, when she received 2013's Cecil B. DeMille Award and when she made her famous coming-out speech. Eight years later, she shared a sweet kiss with her wife on-screen, and the progress was positively heartwarming.
Jodie Foster began her professional career as a child model and actress before achieving global fame in Martin Scorsese's seminal picture 'Taxi Driver.' Soon afterwards, she successfully transitioned into adult roles, appearing in a string of equally successful movies including 'The Accused' and 'Silence of the Lambs.' A two-time Oscar winner, Foster is also an accomplished film director, a role she's focusing more and more on these days.
