Foster Earns Lifetime-Achievement Honor at Globes

Jodie Foster is adding a new trophy to her collection — a lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday that Foster will receive the group’s Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th annual Globes ceremony on Jan. 13.

The 49-year-old Foster is a two-time Globes and Academy Award winner. She was honored with leading actress trophies at both ceremonies for 1988’s “The Accused” and 1991’s “The Silence of the Lambs.”

DeMille Award winners are chosen by the board of directors for the foreign press group. It includes about 90 reporters who cover Hollywood for overseas outlets.

The DeMille Award went to Morgan Freeman earlier this year. Past winners include Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg and Barbra Streisand.

The Globes will air live on NBC. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host. (AP)
