Mavis Spencer, the 18-year-old daughter of noted actress Alfre Woodard, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2010.
Miss Golden Globe (also Mr. Golden Globe) is an annual title awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The honoree, traditionally the daughter (or son) of a celebrity, assists in the Association’s yearly Golden Globe Awards.
“I told Mavis, it’s just like your grandma’s cocktail party, find someone who is interesting and have a chat,” Mavis’ proud Golden Globe-winning mom told PEOPLE Wednesday. “She really is a Renaissance woman. She is a nationally ranked equestrian, she’s a show jumper, she’s a Shakespeare savant and she’s a beautiful actor.”
