McDowell's daughter for Globes role
Andie MacDowell's daughter Rainey Qualley has been introduced as the 2012 Miss Golden Globes.
Rainey was honoured during a news conference at Cecconi's restaurant in West Hollywood.
Miss Golden Globe is traditionally the child of a celebrity who is invited to assist during the awards ceremony. Previous incumbents include Rumer Willis, Laura Dern, Melanie Griffith and Joely Fisher.
The 21-year-old Rainey is an aspiring actress and musician.
The announcement was to be followed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's starry Night of Firsts party, held to celebrate the start of Hollywood's awards season.
Nominations for the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards will be announced next week. The ceremony is slated for January 15.
