“In terms of the professional-achievement stuff, thank God I’m in a better place than I was. After the Oscars and directing, I’m sure I’ll find some new goals, but they won’t be the big looming neon kind that can hang over your head.” - Jodie Foster in 1993, shortly after winning Best Actress for her performance in "Silence of the Lambs." Pictured: Foster and Kasi Lemmons in a scene from "Silence of the Lambs".

Grace Kelly in 1955 at the Governors Ball after winning her only Oscar: Best Actress for her role in “The Country Girl.” Her acceptance speech was very brief. “The thrill of this moment keeps me from saying what I really feel. I can only say thank you with all my heart to all who made this possible for me. Thank you.”
