Gia Mantegna named Miss Golden Globe
Gia Mantegna - who is the daughter of actor Joe Mantegna - has been named the next Miss Golden Globe.
Gia Mantegna has been named Miss Golden Globe 2011.
The 20-year-old actress - who is the daughter of former award nominee Joe Mantegna and his restaurateur wife Arlene - feels "honoured" to have been awarded the prestigious title by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
She said: "I have grown up watching the Golden Globes with my family and feel so fortunate to be part of such a magical evening, so early on in my career."
Previous Miss Golden Globes include Melanie Griffith - daughter of Hitchcock's leading lady Tippi Hedren - who gave out the awards in 1975.
Rumer Willis - whose parents are Bruce Willis and Demi Moore - was named Miss Golden Globe in 2008, but the subsequent ceremony was cancelled due to the Hollywood writer's strike.
Kevin Costner's daughter Lily was Miss Golden Globe in 2004 and in 1995 the title was given to a boy, Clark Gable's son John.
Gia - who is dating 'Hannah Montana' actor Mitchel Musso - started her acting career at the age of 13 when she appeared in the film 'Uncle Nero' alongside her father.
She has since appeared on 'Secret Life of the American Teenager,' 'Criminal Minds' and NickTeen series 'Gigantic' alongside Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer.
The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk, commented: "We are thrilled to have Gia as this year's Miss Golden Globe.
"She is just as talented as she is beautiful and will surely be a great addition to the show."
The 68th Golden Globe Awards - which honour the best in film and television - will be presented on January 16 at the Beverly Hilton hotel in California.
