Jamie Foxx’s daughter is going to the Golden Globe Awards.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that the actor and musician’s daughter Corinne, will serve as Miss Golden Globe at the ceremony in January.

Corinne, 20, is a senior at the University of Southern California, and has recently begun a modelling career. She is used to the spotlight having accompanied her dad on the red carpet many times.

Speaking about the honour, she told People: “I’ve known for about three weeks. Maybe like a month and I was so excited. I had all of this energy and I’m not lying, for an hour straight, just jumped around my house and was bouncing off the walls, and was Googling all of this stuff about Miss Golden Globes so I was really excited.”

She also revealed her Golden Globe Award-winning dad’s reaction. “My dad, he’s a little bit emotional. He won’t admit it, but he had tears in his eyes and he was so happy for me to kind of have my own thing now,” she said.

Miss Golden Globe, traditionally the daughter of a Hollywood star, appears on the telecast and assists during the ceremony. Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Greer was last year’s pick.

Past holders of the title include Rumer Willis, Francesca Eastwood, and Laura Dern.

Freddie Prinze Jr and Michael J Fox’s son, Sam Fox, have also held the post as Mr Golden Globe.

Jamie Foxx won a Golden Globe in 2005 for Ray.

The Golden Globes will be presented on January 10, 2016, with British funnyman Ricky Gervais taking on hosting duties.
