There are only a couple of things Jodie Foster is interested in seeing on social media.

The actress, 61, said she’d be “all for” joining social media “if it was just dancing and cats” as she spoke of the positive fan reaction online to her show True Detective: Night Country at the Saturn Awards on Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to PEOPLE at the ceremony, the actress said, “I've never been on it, so there you go. I do look over other people's shoulders on Instagram every once in a while because of course, dancing and cats.”

“And if it was just dancing and cats, I'd be all for it,” Foster added at the event, held in Burbank, California.

While discussing the online reaction to True Detective, she told PEOPLE, “I don't have social media, so I have no idea, but I have read the reviews, so I know about the reviews, and I know how I feel, so I feel incredibly proud of this one.”

In fact, when it comes to the HBO series, which aired its fourth episode on Sunday, Foster said she is “more proud about this one than anything I've done in a really long time.”

“And so I just assume that if it connects with me, it must connect with other people,” the actress continued. “I think I'm pretty realistic about the films that I've made. If I'm not directing it, there's only so much I can do. So you can say, I wish this had happened. You're always revising in your head, but not this one.”

In the fourth season of the anthology crime series, which is dubbed Night Country, Foster portrays Liz Danvers, a detective in Ennis, Alaska, attempting to figure out what happened to eight men who went missing from the Tsalal Arctic Research Station.

Foster received the prestigious life career award at the ceremony on Sunday in honor of her five-decade-plus acting career, which started with a role on Mayberry R.F.D. at just 5 years old and has since included notable films, like Taxi Driver, Silence of the Lambs and Contact.

While reflecting on the full-circle moment in her career, the former child star told PEOPLE, "This was my film school, so I was watching as a child, just watching the different directors that I worked with and trying to figure out how they managed to get the results that they were getting ... and making the films at the same time."

"That was how I learned. And yeah, I feel like I learned from some of the best of them," she added.

Foster was joined by fellow recipient on the night Keanu Reeves, who was honored with the inaugural Lance Reddick legacy award.

The award was named after Reeves’ late John Wick costar Lance Reddick who died last March and “symbolizes and celebrates not only a performer’s talent, but their character," according to a press release. Reeves, 59, was also nominated for best actor in a film.
