Mavis Spencer(b. 1992) is pictured with her mom, actress Alfre Woodard, and Hollywood Foreign Press president Philip Berk at the 2nd annual Golden Globes party saluting young Hollywood on December 8, 2009.
The High School senior has been selected as Miss Golden Globe for “The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards” to be aired on NBC on Sunday, January 17, 2010. Traditionally, Miss Golden Globes is a son or daughter of a celebrity who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony.
“It means a lot to me as a young person to be a part of something with such a rich history,” Mavis said in a speech at the Young Hollywood event. “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.”
Next year Mavis will attend Columbia University(class of 2014), where she plans to study acting.
