Jodie Foster has won her first Golden Globe in nearly three decades.

Foster won the Globe for best supporting actress in a film Sunday night for her role in “The Mauritanian.”

It’s the third acting Golden Globe for the 58-year-old Foster, but the first since she won in 1992 for “Silence of the Lambs.”

She said “I never expected to ever be here again” as she accepted the award.

In “The Mauritanian,” Fosters stars opposite Tahar Rahim as a lawyer seeking to free a man held without charges for 14 years at Guantanamo Bay.

She also won the Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award in 2013, and has won two Oscars.

Foster beat out nominees including Olivia Colman, Glenn Close, Helena Zengel and Amanda Seyfried.
