LOS ANGELES (CBSLA/AP) — The group behind the Golden Globe awards says its Miss Golden Globe honoree will now be known as the Golden Globe Ambassador.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna says the move was made in order to help expand the role to help recognize the association’s philanthropic efforts throughout the year.
The honoree is traditionally the child of a celebrity. This year’s Golden Globe Ambassador is Simone Garcia Johnson, the daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his ex-wife, producer Dany Garcia.
We’re extremely proud and thankful for this moment. Congratulations to our daughter @simonegjohnson on being selected as the very first #GoldenGlobes AMBASSADOR. Thank you to our friends and colleagues of the #HFPA for recognizing her value and voice. An amazing and cool honor to rep our community and the #Globes75. So much alofa and pride Xo D, @laurenhashianofficial @danygarciaco @daverienzi 👏🏾👏🏾🙏🏾❤️
The announcement was made at a party in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. The 16-year-old Garcia Johnson has been recently signed by IMG Models.
