A young actress who is the daughter of a big TV star has been named Miss Golden Globe — an honor that traditionally goes to the offspring of a celebrity.
TheWrap.com reports that the title for 2015 goes to Greer Grammer, the daughter of veteran sitcom star Kelsey Grammer and makeup artist Barrie Buckner. Greer Grammer, 22, is known for her portrayal of Lissa on the MTV series “Awkward.”
The duties that come with the title include helping the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with its annual Golden Globe Awards.
Last year, the title went to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s daughter Sosie Bacon, while Francesca Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher, was honored in 2013.
Other famous couples whose kids have held the title include Bruce Willis and Demi Moore (Rumer Willis, 2008), Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard (Lorraine Nicholson, 2007) and Eddie Fisher and Connie Stevens (Joely Fisher, 1992).
Actress Melanie Griffith has been a part of the title both as a daughter and as a mom. The daughter of Peter Griffith and Tippi Hedren was Miss Golden Globe 1975, and later saw her daughter with Don Johnson, Dakota Johnson, named Miss Golden Globe 2006.
In a statement, Greer Grammer said: “I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe. It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of.”
Her father, who is a three-time Golden Globe winner along with his five Primetime Emmys, had a long run as Dr. Frasier Crane on the NBC sitcoms “Cheers” and “Frasier,” more recently starring on the Starz political drama “Boss.”
