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."
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."
