Jodie Foster, Best Actress, 'The Brave One'

"The nomination is so exciting and surprising at the same time. Never saw it coming . . . It's strange to continue to feel a character in your blood long after it wraps. I am so proud of 'The Brave One,' of where Neil Jordan took the character of Erica Bain. The experience of playing her has moved me deeper than anything I can remember. I can't wait to have some rubber chicken and listen to the unscripted banter with all of those fine actresses." -- Jodie Foster, statement provided by MRC
