Jodie Foster Receives the Cecil B De Mille Award at the 2013 Golden Globes

JodieJodie Foster was awarded the Cecil B De Mille Award at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony. This award is a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Although she is only 50, Foster has been in the business for 47 years. She has been one of the few child actors who has made the successful transition into adulthood and an amazing career.

Receiving this award does not mean this is the end of her career, there is still much more of Jodie Foster to come both in acting and directing!

Her friend Robert Downey Jrn gave a fun introduction to Jodie but Jodie’s speech stole the show (rightly so).

Jodie’s speech was one of the great ones I have seen.  She spoke from the heart and wasn’t preachy but raised some very good/important points – privacy being one of them.

It really is time that we as a society shift our focus. Remember privacy. That’s important! In this modern world of reality TV and celebrity we seem to have forgotten all about it. We seem to think that just because someone has chosen their career to be show biz we own them.

We don’t own them. Everyone has a right to privacy and peace and love.

Watch Jodie’s fabulous speech. Show your sons, your daughters, this is what we should aspire to – greatness, not fame!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
