Newly named "Entertainment Tonight" co-host Rocsi Diaz chatted with celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Connie Britton, and Amy Poehler after last night's Golden Globes. The former host of BET's "106 & Park" asked the interviewees what they thought of Jodie Foster's acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award, and the response was overwhelmingly positive.

Vanessa Hudgens: "There was not a dry eye in the house. It was amazing, I adore her...We're all hustling in this community together. It's like if we can share our true feelings about our views and things that really matter, it's astonishing. That's how it should be."

Connie Britton: "Jodie Foster's speech made me cry. It was so beautiful.

When asked what she might do if she met Foster: "I think I might just bow down. She's just such an example for all of us. She's done such amazing work as a woman in film and I admire her on every level."

Amy Poehler: "Beautiful, I thought her speech was beautiful. I'm such a fan of hers. She seems like such a class act. Her speech was really, really gorgeous."

Sophia Vergara: "No I didn't cry. For me it isn't worth it, it isn't about the crying. For me, it's about how amazing and celebrating. It's not like we're working on a mine in Peru...It's about beautiful things."
