HFPA writes the following about Foster:
"Foster is a two time Golden Globe winner, both as best actress in a motion picture-drama: first in 1989, for The Accused, and then in 1992 for The Silence of the Lambs. In addition, Foster was nominated five other times, the most recent one in 2011 for best actress in a comedy or musical for Carnage. A long time veteran of film and television, 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. She made her feature debut in Napoleon and Samantha when she was eight years old.
Foster’s breakthrough role in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1975), led her to the iconic performance of a streetwise teenager in Martin Crosse’s Taxi Driver (1976), winning her widespread critical praise and international attention.
In total, Foster has appeared in more than 40 films. 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. Her most recent film, The Beaver, which stars Mel Gibson, was released in 2011. Since 1994 Foster has also become a producer, through her banner Egg Pictures."
