Corinne Foxx is the second Black woman to receive the honor.
Jamie Foxx has reason to be a proud papa today.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that Corinne Foxx, the 21-year-old daughter of the actor/singer/funny man, would be Miss Golden Globes 2016.
“Throughout the years, I’ve grown up watching my dad establish himself as a well-respective actor,” Corinne said. “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.”
Miss/Mister Golden Globe is an honor that is typically bestowed upon the son or daughter of a Hollywood actor, actress, producer or director, lending a hand throughout the awards ceremony. Corinne, who models and is currently a student at the University of Southern California, is only the second Black woman chosen for the honor (the first was Mavis Spencer, the daughter of Alfre Woodard, in 2010).
Be sure to catch the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards January 10 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Congrats, Corinne!
