JODIE FOSTER TO RECEIVE CECIL B. DEMILLE AWARD AT 70TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE(R) AWARDS ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - November 1, 2012 - Jodie Foster will be honored at the 2013 Golden Globe(R) Awards telecast with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her outstanding contribution to the entertainment field. Dr. Aida Takla-O'Reilly, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), was joined by Kristen Stewart (Twilight series, On the Road) and two-time Golden Globe nominated actor Simon Baker (The Mentalist) at the press conference this morning from the Beverly Hills Hotel.

"Jodie is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career," said Takla-O'Reilly. "Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She's truly one of a kind."

The Cecil B. DeMille Award will be presented to Foster at the 70th Annual Golden Globe(R) Awards on Sunday, January 13, 2013, LIVE coast-to-coast on NBC with the pre-show from 4:00-5:00 p.m. (PST)/7:00-8:00 p.m. (EST), and main telecast from 5:00-8:00 p.m. (PST)/8:00-11:00 p.m. (EST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. DeMille Award is given annually to the talented individuals who have made an incredible impact on the world of entertainment. Morgan Freeman was bestowed with the honor last year. Previous honorees include Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Walt Disney, Harrison Ford, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese, Frank Sinatra, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, among many others.

Foster's stunning performances as a rape survivor in The Accused and as Special Agent Clarice Starling in the hit thriller The Silence of the Lambs earned her two Academy Awards(R) for Best Actress and a reputation as one of the most critically acclaimed actresses of her generation.

Foster began her career at age three, appearing as "The Coppertone Girl" in the television commercial. She then went on to become a regular on a number of television series, including "Mayberry RFD," "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," "My Three Sons" and "Paper Moon." She made her feature debut in Napoleon and Samantha when she was eight years old.

But it was her role in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1975) which brought her to the audience's attention and her powerful portrayal of a streetwise teenager in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976) that won her widespread critical praise and international attention. Foster appeared in a total of four films in 1976, Bugsy Malone, Echoes of Summer, Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane and Taxi Driver, which were all presented at the Cannes Film Festival. Alan Parker's Bugsy Malone, earned her an Italian Comedy Award.

In total, Foster has appeared in more than 40 films, including Carnage for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination; Nim's Island with Gerard Butler; The Brave One for director Neil Jordan which earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination; Inside Man with Denzel Washington and Clive Owen; the box-office hit Flightplan; Jean Pierre Jeunet's French language film, A Very Long Engagement; David Fincher's box-office success, Panic Room; Anna and the King for director Andy Tenant, Contact for director Robert Zemeckis; Nell opposite Liam Neeson; the comedy Maverick opposite Mel Gibson and James Garner and the romantic drama Sommersby opposite Richard Gere.

Other motion picture credits include Woody Allen's stylized black and white comedy Shadows and Fog; Siesta; Stealing Home; Five Corners; as well as earlier films Tom Sawyer; Freaky Friday; Adrian Lyne's Foxes; Tony Richardson's The Hotel New Hampshire and Claude Chabrol's The Blood of Others, for which the multi-lingual Foster looped all of her own dialogue in French.

For her role in The Silence of the Lambs, Foster was also awarded a Golden Globe(R) Award, a British Academy Award, a New York Film Critics Award and a Chicago Film Critics Award. Foster received her first Oscar(R) nomination and awards from the National Society of Film Critics and the Los Angeles Film Critics for her role in Taxi Driver. She also became the only American actress to win two separate awards in the same year from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts - Best Supporting Actress and Best Newcomer honoring her performances in both Taxi Driver and Bugsy Malone.

Most recently Foster completed filming Elysium opposite Matt Damon for director Neil Blomkamp.

In addition to her acting, Foster has always had a keen interest in the art of filmmaking.

Foster made her motion picture directorial debut in 1991 with the highly acclaimed Little Man Tate, in which she also starred. In 1995, Foster directed her second film, Home for the Holidays, which she also produced. The film starred Holly Hunter, Anne Bancroft and Robert Downey Jr. Her most recent film, The Beaver, which stars Mel Gibson, was released in 2011.

Foster founded Egg Pictures in 1992 and the company produced Nell (1994), for which Foster earned an Academy Award(R) nomination for Best Actress; Home for the Holidays (1995); the Showtime telefilm The Baby Dance (1998) which received a Peabody Award, four Emmy(R) Award nominations and three Golden Globe(R) Award nominations; as well as USA Films' Waking the Dead, directed by Keith Gordon starring Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connelly. In 1996, Egg presented the award-winning French film Hate (L'Haine) in the United States. Foster and Egg Pictures also produced The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2001).

The 70th Annual Golden Globe(R) Awards will be seen in more than 192 countries worldwide and is one of the few awards ceremonies that span both television and motion picture achievements. The special will be produced by dick clark productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
