For the first time ever, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), introduced the Miss Golden Globe® 2015 this evening, November 20. For the celebration of the 72nd Annual Golden Globe® Awards, Theo Kingma announced Greer Grammer as Miss Golden Globe® 2015 at the first party of the 2015 Golden Globe® Awards Season, hosted by the HFPA and InStyle. The event that began at 7pm this evening, was held at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood and was presented by Aquafina.
Greer Grammer is the daughter of three time Golden Globe® winner and nine time Golden Globe® nominee Kelsey Grammer and hair and makeup stylist Barrie Buckner. Greer Grammer, an actress in her own right, can be seen on MTV’s award-winning TV show ‘Awkward’ and recently starred in ‘Life Partners’, one of the Tribeca Film Festival’s top 10 indie movies of 2014. Also Greer Grammer can be seen in the upcoming movie ‘ An Evergreen Christmas’ as well as in the new season of ‘Melissa & Joey’.
‘We are delighted to have Greer Grammer continue the tradition and have her as our 2015 Miss Golden Globe®,’ said Kingma. ‘She’s following in her father’s footsteps in becoming a standout actress and we can’t wait to see what she does next.’
The honoree, chosen by the HFPA is traditionally the son or daughter of one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, actresses, directors and producers and is there to assist during the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.
‘I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe®’ said Grammer. ‘It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of.’
Previous honorees to be Mister or Miss Golden Globe® include Sam Fox, daughter of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, Rainey Qualley, daughter of Andie MacDowell, Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Freddie Prinze Jr., son of Freddie Prinze and Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Being the offspring of celebrity doesn’t always qualify you to be Mr. or Miss Golden Globe® as there have been several that were actors and actresses in their own right starting with the first ever Miss Golden Globe®, Donna Douglas, known for her portrayal of Ellie May Clampett on TV’s ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’.
