Jodie Foster brought some to tears when she spoke of her ailing mother during her revealing Golden Globes speech Sunday night – and, backstage, the actress continued to praise her.

"My mom is an amazing inspiration for me," Foster told reporters in the press room after her speech, in which she opened up about her family life with her two sons and ex-partner Cydney Bernard for the first time publicly.

"She picked me up from school and took me to see foreign films, sometimes two or three, and she wouldn't let me do my homework because she really wanted me to see movies. She passed that along to me, and I am grateful that she wanted me to be respected."

Jodie Foster had some bewildered and some brought to tears during her speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

While being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress, 50, delivered a powerful speech where she addressed everything from her sexuality to her relationship with her mother.

"While I'm here being all confessional, I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I've never really been able to air in public," a smiling Foster said. "[It's] a declaration that I'm a little nervous about – but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now. I'm just going to put it out there – loud and proud."

Well, Jodie Foster won't have to worry about Ricky Gervais tossing any barbs in her direction.

Ricky Gervais Packs Less Punch at Golden Globes

Where was Ricky?

You can only shock the monkey so many times. If the monkey is an actor, it will learn to pretend to like it.

That seemed to happen with Ricky Gervais's disappointing return to the Golden Globes Sunday night on NBC. In last year's rude but delightful show, he insulted Robert Downey Jr., Johnny Depp and more with a kind of delirious, infantile happiness, like the world's smarmiest baby. This time, given all the hype, he might have been expected to go nuclear. But he was like a less reverent Billy Crystal.

If he had once been a fly in the ointment, this time the ointment rose up around the fly and neutralized it with a swallow.

Jodie Foster's 89-year-old estranged father was sentenced Friday to five years in jail for taking $130,000 in down payments for homes that he never built.

Lucius Foster, a Sherman Oaks, Calif., building contractor, could have received as much as 25 years after being convicted of 21 counts of grand theft and nine counts of contracting without a license, all misdemeanors.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory A. Dohi lamented that the trial didn't stop Foster from soliciting customers.

"Despite your personal charm, you are dangerous," Dohi said.
