Mavis Spencer, the daughter of actors Alfre Woodard and Roderick Spencer, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2010.
Miss Golden Globe (also Mr. Golden Globe) is an annual title awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The honoree, traditionally the daughter (or son) of a celebrity, assists in the Association’s yearly Golden Globe Awards. The 18-year-old lovely has been selected to present the statues at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles in January, the Association said at last night’s annual HFPA Dinner.
“I told Mavis, it’s just like your grandma’s cocktail party, find someone who is interesting and have a chat,” Mavis’ proud Golden Globe-winning mom told PEOPLE Wednesday. “She really is a Renaissance woman. She is a nationally ranked equestrian, she’s a show jumper, she’s a Shakespeare savant and she’s a beautiful actor.”
Other stars who have been named Miss Golden Globe include Rumer Willis, Melanie Griffith, and Joely Fisher.
