The 70th Golden Globes were Sunday night—celebrating achievement in television and film—but the awards weren’t the only talking points in the Twitterverse. Jodie Foster won the Cecil B. DeMille award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” however her acceptance speech left some in tears and others simply confused.

So did Jodie Foster just came out, lectured on privacy, discussed her mom’s dementia and retired? Am I clear on that? Did I miss anything?Rebecca Traister
Only saw GGs part where Jodie Foster used her coming out to make fun of Honey Boo Boo. Uncouth for a Yaley, chastising a 7-yr-old.Kelli Korducki

Another celebrity actor was a big hit Sunday night: Tommy Lee Jones. He didn’t take home any awards for his role in the movie “Lincoln”, but did garner a lot of attention for being the least enthusiastic person on camera.
