Jodie Foster has won her fourth Golden Globe Award, and thrilled queer viewers by serving serious lesbian energy during her acceptance speech.
Jodie won Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in legal drama The Mauritanian at the 78th Golden Globes ceremony.
Due to the pandemic, the winners accepted their awards virtually. Foster appeared during the ceremony sitting in matching pyjamas at home on her couch with her wife, Alexsandra Hedison, whom she married in 2014.
After presenter Jamie Lee Curtis announced her win, the two women kissed immediately.
“I love my wife, thank you Alex!” Jodie said during her speech, her pet dog in her arms.
“Jodie Foster is living her best life,” one person tweeted.
“Here for Jodie Foster’s casual Big Lesbian Energy,” another wrote.
“Jodie Foster and her wife appear to both be wearing pajamas and that would be a breathtaking power move even without the dog in the frame,” one person declared.
In The Mauritanian, Foster played Nancy Hollander, a lawyer representing one of the men jailed for the 9/11 terror attacks.

Feeling especially gay after seeing Jodie Foster’s speech followed by Gillian Anderson’s.

Listen. Going from Jane Fonda to Jamie Lee Curtis to Jodie Foster to Gillian Anderson was quite simply *A LOT* FOR MY GAY HEART IN A ROW.
I have now retired to my fainting couch. Good day. pic.twitter.com/lrRbilmFdN
