HFPA President Theo Kingma made the announcement at the party, the first of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards Season, hosted by the HFPA and InStyle. “We are delighted to have Greer Grammer continue the tradition and have her as our 2015 Miss Golden Globe,” said Kingma. “She’s following in her father’s footsteps in becoming a standout actress and we can’t wait to see what she does next.” “I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe,” said Grammer. “It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of. “I didn’t even tell my dad because I knew he’d tell everybody and it had to be a secret until the party,” she said. “I’m so excited. It’s going to be a wonderful year and so much fun. “I’m really looking forward to being on stage with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey because I’m such a huge fan of them both. It still hasn’t really hit me that I will be up there will so many amazing people I have looked up to for so long.” Greer, who was named after the actress Greer Garson, has already carved a considerable niche for herself in show business, having known since the age of five that she wanted to be an actress.
