The Hollywood Foreign Press is bestowing its lifetime achievement award on actor-director-producer Jodie Foster and will present it at the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards on January 13. The announcement was made this morning in a ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The two-time Globe winner (best actress drama wins for Silence Of The Lambs and The Accused) and five-time nominee most recently was nominated for last year’s Carnage, and she last directed The Beaver starring Mel Gibson, but her career in Hollywood began in commercials at age 3 and now includes producing. Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the award is given annually recognizing a person’s impact on the world of entertainment. Morgan Freeman won last year.
