HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Mavis Spencer as its selection as Miss Golden Globe for "The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards" to be telecast live on NBC on Sunday, January 17, 2010. HFPA President Philip Berk made the announcement at the Second Annual Golden Globes Party Saluting Young Hollywood, which took place at Nobu West Hollywood on December 8. Traditionally, Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony, is the daughter of a well-known celebrity.

Mavis, age 18, is the daughter of Golden Globe winner Alfre Woodard and writer/producer Roderick Spencer.

"We are delighted that Mavis will join us on January 17 to celebrate 'The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards,'" said Berk at the announcement. "She's a lovely, multi-talented and very poised young lady."

"It means a lot to me as a young person to be a part of something with such a rich history," said Mavis. "I know how my mom feels when she brings home a statue. And to hand someone a token of their accomplishments when they're elated will just be really cool. I have memories of my mom traipsing off to the Globes, but this year she's with me! And we're going to have so much fun."

Soon to be a college Freshman (Columbia University class of 2014), Mavis has appeared in Teen Vogue and InStyle Magazine. Something of a renaissance woman, Mavis plans to model and study acting at Columbia, while continuing her already illustrious career in Equestrienne Show Jumping.

Previous Miss Golden Globe honorees include Rumer Willis (daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis), Laura Dern (daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern), Joely Fisher (daughter of Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher), and Melanie Griffith (daughter of Tippi Hedren).

Fuze was the premiere sponsor for The Second Annual Golden Globes Party Saluting Young Hollywood.
