Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, was named Miss Golden Globe 2016 at a party Tuesday at Ysabel West Hollywood.
“Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next,” said Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
“Throughout the years I’ve grown up watching my dad establish himself as a well-respected actor,” said the younger Foxx. Jamie Foxx is a Golden Globe winner and two-time nominee. “I’m honored that HFPA has given me the opportunity to now share the same stage where he’s been recognized for some of his greatest accomplishments.” She is a senior at the University of Southern California and recently shot a campaign for The Icing.
Miss Golden Globe is traditionally the son or daughter of a Hollywood veteran, and assists during the ceremony. NBC will air the 73rd annual Golden Globes on January 10, hosted by Ricky Gervais. Previous Miss and Mister Golden Globe honorees include: Greer Grammer, daughter of Kelsey Grammer; Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher; Sam Fox, son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan.
