Dorothy Snarker: I absolutely, positively cannot pick just one because she was my very first crush. So there. Rules be damned. For sentimental reasons, Stealing Home because it came out during my formative years and I watched it on a seemingly endless loop on our family's contraband HBO feed. Those blue eyes mesmerized me.

Actor uses awards ceremony speech to make first public utterance about her sexuality, an open secret in Hollywood
There was unexpected British success at night's Golden Globes awards, but the ceremony was overshadowed by an extraordinary acceptance speech by actor Jodie Foster, in which she "came out" in front of the massed Hollywood glitterati.
