Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster has just delivered what is set to be the most talked-about speech in Golden Globes history.

The actress, whose career has spanned almost 50 years in cinema and television, spoke at the Golden Globes today after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement.

Foster, who is best known for her performance as Iris, the pre-teen prostitute in Taxi Driver in 1976 and in Silence of the Lambs in 1991, brought the celebrity packed audience to tears as she talked about her sexuality, her children and her on-screen career.

Take a look at her remarkable speech here:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler gave us a new reason to watch the Golden Globes this year – in fact, the news that the duo would be hosting the awards ceremony, prompting a whole host of new drinking games.

The actresses didn’t disappoint either, as they gently mocked the gathering of celebrities, while not taking it ‘too far’ so as to scare off the Hollywood elite (as former hosts have done).

You can watch their very funny opening sequence here:

Still want more Golden Globes? Of course you do. And we’ve got a gallery of all the best dresses (and suits!) here.
