The Golden Globes, which will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, is all set to air on January 8.

This year, instead of an awards-season one-off, the role has been expanded to "embody the HFPA's philanthropic efforts year round", said Meher Tatna, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which presents the Globes and plans this year to distribute $2.8 million in charitable grants to entertainment-industry organizations. Newly signed to IMG Models, Simone is Johnson's daughter from his first marriage to Dany Garcia, his manager and the chairwoman of Seven Bucks Productions.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is celebrating its milestone 75th anniversary with a new role for the Golden Globes that was long overdue.

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.

Simone Garcia Johnson, the 16-year-old daughter of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, made her debut as the new Golden Globes Ambassador, formerly Miss Golden Globe, on Wednesday at Catch LA restaurant in West Hollywood, Calif.

For viewers of the show, Miss Golden Globe-excuse us, the Golden Globe Ambassador-is usually the child or children of a famous person who is introduced near the beginning of the show, and then lingers silently on the side of the stage to hand over statues to the presenters, who then give them to the lucky winners.

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.

Speaking to Footwear News, the teen said that she's anxious about "making sure I have comfortable shoes" during the night of the forthcoming awards show. "We're extremely proud and thankful for this moment". Thank you to our friends and colleagues of the #HFPA for recognizing her value and voice.

Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet Stallone, the daughters of Golden Globe- winning actor Sylvester Stallone, were Miss Golden Globes for the 2017 ceremony.
