Robert Downey Jr., a man who has "played Iron Man in all three Iron Man movies," was tasked with awarding Jodie Foster the coveted Cecil B. Demille award. In the run-up to said award he told an inside joke with a punchline leading to Jodie Foster eating a fake hamster presented to her by Mel Gibson. We didn't get it either.

Byringing some sanity back, Foster took the stage with a beautiful, slightly confusing speech (is she retiring from acting?) and all the audience batted their lashes at her adoringly because she's eloquent, charming and simply the best.
