GOLDEN GLOBE AMBASSADORS ’21: JACKSON & SATCHEL LEE
In January 2021, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) revealed that Satchel Lee and Jackson Lee — the children of filmmaker and three-time Golden Globe nominee Spike Lee and producer Tonya Lewis Lee — will take on the roles of Ambassadors for the February 2021 ceremony.
Announced during a virtual event held amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Satchel and Jackson’s appointment marks the first time in HFPA history that two siblings of color have held the position. Jackson is also the first Black male Ambassador to hold the role.
During the event, the brother and sister duo thanked their parents for inspiring them and for teaching them about the importance of using their platform to give back through their newly minted positions, her to LGBTQ+ healthcare center Callen-Lorde and him to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
GOLDEN GLOBE AMBASSADOR ’20: DYLAN & PARIS BROSNAN
Pierce Brosnan’s sons Dylan and Paris were the 2020 Golden Globe Ambassadors, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the previous Nov. 14.
The James Bond star’s sons, whom he shares with Keely Shaye Brosnan, were the first pair of brothers to hold the title.
In line with the focus on Golden Globe Ambassadors championing important causes, Paris told reporters that he and Dylan “understand the value of education and its importance in equipping the next generation with skills to succeed.”
“I’ve never had to worry about where my next meal might come from — I’m lucky in that respect; but I know that millions of children worldwide don’t have that luxury,” he continued. “School meals provide critically important nutrition, and also incentivize parents to keep kids in school, giving them a fighting chance for a better life.”
Earlier in 2019, Paris, then 18, traveled to Sri Lanka to make a short film about the ongoing work being done in the South Asian island country by the UN World Food Programme (WFP) for child hunger. He’s now a student at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and Television.
Older brother Dylan joined his dad on the red carpet for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood, and has appeared in Saint Laurent fashion shows in 2015 and 2016, according to Vogue. He’s also a musician in the band Raspberry Blonde.
GOLDEN GLOBE AMBASSADOR ’19: ISAN ELBA
Move over, Sexiest Man Alive — it’s Isan’s turn to have the spotlight. The then-16-year-old daughter of Idris Elba and ex Kim Elba was named Golden Globe Ambassador in a November 2018 ceremony in L.A.
“I’ve always been a lover TV and movies and I dream to be in the industry one day,” she said while thanking her parents. “I’m really honored to have this position and be able to talk about things that, issues that I care about such as mental health, expression among African Americans, and my peers in particular. There’s a perceived stigma and I’ve seen my friends struggle with it.”
In a chat with PEOPLE, Elba said her famous father texted her the big news.
“I literally, I was like, ‘Are you sure?’ Because, you know, he deals with, you know, cool stuff all the time so I was like, ‘Are you sending this to the right person?’” she said. “And I showed my mom, I was like, ‘Mom, dad just told me I’m the Golden Globe Ambassador,’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, you are!’”
She continued, “So I was literally flipping out! It was surreal and so I’m really honored to have this and be a part of the Golden Globes that I always watched my whole life and now being able to go on stage and touch a Golden Globe and meet people that are winning Golden Globes is really cool.”
GOLDEN GLOBE AMBASSADOR ’18: SIMONE GARCIA JOHNSON

MISS GG ’15: GREER GRAMMER
“I screamed and I jumped up and down,” Grammer – daughter of Frasier‘s Kelsey and ex Barrie Buckner – told reporters of being named Miss Golden Globe 2015. “I grew up watching the Golden Globes – I would look at Miss Golden Globe every year and hope that someday I would be able to do that.
