For the 75th anniversary of the awards ceremony, the Golden Globes is doing away with its tradition of Miss Golden Globes - a ceremonial title for the kids of Hollywood starlets.

Kaya Scodelario and Saoirse Ronan keep it classy while stepping out for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association & InStyle's Golden Globe Awards Celebration held at Catch LA on Wednesday night (November 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

"As we look forward to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members made a decision to expand this role to embody the HFPA's philanthropic efforts year round", HFPA President Meher Tatna said.

"I've been lucky enough to grow up in a household with strong role models", Garcia Johnson said in a statement released by the HFPA.

The HFPA also explained more of what the role will entail for Johnson, including a partnership with GlobalGirl Media, which works to empower women from disadvantaged areas on their path to becoming journalists. Dwayne has been married to Lauren Hashian since the year he and Dany divorced, and he and Lauren have a one-year-old daughter called Jasmine. The previous honorary title of Miss or Mister Golden Globe was retired.


Simone expressed his gratitude as she posts a picture on Instagram with caption, "Finding words to describe exactly how I feel right now is a bit hard".

The Golden Globes, which will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, is all set to air on January 8. Congratulations to our daughter @simonegjohnson on being selected as the very first #GoldenGlobes AMBASSADOR.

Simone already knows what it's like to live in the public eye, and has joined her famous dad at high-profile Hollywood events like the 2016 Golden Globes and premieres of movies he's starred in such as Baywatch and Moana.

Miss Golden Globe was traditionally a daughter of a well-known celebrity and handed out awards at the ceremony.
