TCM Classic Film Festival to honor Jodie Foster with legendary Hollywood ceremony

TCM has announced that iconic actress and filmmaker Jodie Foster will be honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX® during the 15th annual TCM Classic Film Festival on Friday, April 19. 

The Silence of the Lambs (1991), for which Foster earned an Academy Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actress, will also play during the Festival with a special introduction by Foster.

The Oscar-winning actress and director is having a resurgence due to her stunning roles in NYAD and True Detective. And her happy and relatively high-profile relationship with The L Word actress and artist Alexandra Hedison.

Foster is an iconic performer, having appeared in 40 films. She received her first Oscar® nomination and awards from the National Society of Film Critics and the Los Angeles Film Critics for her role in Taxi Driver. She also became the only American actress to win two separate awards in the same year from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts – Best Supporting Actress and Best Newcomer honoring her performances in both Taxi Driver and Bugsy Malone.

This marks the 11th hand and footprint ceremony as part of the TCM Classic Film Festival. In 2011, Peter O’Toole was the honoree, followed by Kim Novak in 2012, Jane Fonda in 2013, Jerry Lewis in 2014, Christopher Plummer in 2015, Francis Ford Coppola in 2016, Carl and Rob Reiner in 2017, Cicely Tyson in 2018, Billy Crystal in 2019, and Lily Tomlin in 2022.
