Jodie Foster presents a mystery for the ages

The showstopping acceptance speech of the night came from Jodie Foster, who accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award for life achievement in cinema. After an in-jokey intro from Robert Downey Jr. (with an assist from her tablemate Mel Gibson), Foster took the stage to confuse the entire audience. Did she finally publicly come out of the closet? Sort of. Not really. Did she announce her retirement from acting? Sort of. Not really. She did clear some things up, however. She is not Honey Boo Boo, she said. So we can all agree on that. Everything else is up for interpretation.
