Rodgers and Foster seem to be going back-and-forth with mentioning each other in their acceptance speeches. Rodgers thanked The Silence of the Lambs alum back on February 6 as he made the surprise announcement during his NFL MVP acceptance speech that he was engaged. He didn’t name his fiancée during the speech, but OK! later confirmed it was Woodley.

“2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing, memorable moments,” Rodgers described as he accepted the 2020 Most Valuable Player award. “One hundred-eighty straight days of having my nose hair scraped, a plan for very little fans or no stands the entire season, I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career.” 

Foster is revered as one of the best actresses of her generation. Her win for The Mauritanian marks her third Golden Globe win out of nine nominations throughout her career.
