    Jamie Foxx's 21-year-old daughter Corinne Foxx has been named Miss Golden Globe 2016 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

    "Throughout the years I've grown up watching my dad establish himself as a well-respected actor," Foxx said during a party hosted by the HFPA and InStyle in West Hollywood tonight. "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."

    The honoree is traditionally the son or daughter of one of the industry's most respected actors/directors/producers and assists during the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

    Miss Golden Globe selections over the past 10 years include Dakota Johnson, Rumer Willis and both Kathryn and Francesca Eastwood, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter Sosie Bacon, and last year's honoree Greer Grammer, daughter of Kelsey Grammer and ex Barrie Buckner.

    "We are delighted to have Corinne Foxx continue the tradition and have her as our 2016 Miss Golden Globe," HFPA President Lorenzo Soria said during the announcement. "Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can't wait to see what she does next."

    The Hollywood Foreign Press Association just announced that they will also be honoring two-time Globe winner Denzel Washington with the Cecil B. Mille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" when the 73rd Annual Golden Globes airs live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 10, 2016, with Ricky Gervais as host.
