Corrine Foxx, the eldest daughter of Jamie Foxx, has been tapped to be Miss Golden Globe 2016.

Corrine Foxx Is Miss Golden Globe

Lorenzo Soria, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, officially named Corrine Miss Golden Globe at Ysabel West Hollywood Tuesday.

“Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next,” Soria said at the party.

Accepting the appointment, Corrine said of her father, “Throughout the years I’ve grown up watching my dad establish himself as a well-respected actor,” adding, “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.”

Jamie won a Golden Globe for his leading performance in Ray in 2015. He was also nominated twice in 2004 – once for Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story and again for Collateral.

The proud father took to Instagram to post not one, but two pictures of his daughter following the Miss Golden Globe announcement. “sooo proud of my little one for being chosen as Miss Golden Globes 2016 @corinnefoxx can’t wait to see you on the stage!!!!” Jamie captioned one snap.
