2017 Golden Globes News

Yesterday the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced this edition Miss Golden Globe and this time they surprised us with a trio, three Sylvester Stallone daughters, Sistine, Sophia and Scarlet.

“For the first time in Golden Globe history, we have proudly selected not one but three Miss Golden Globe representatives. The Stallone sisters will continue our time honored tradition of handing out the statuettes at the awards ceremony,” said Soria. “Each of the lovely young women in the triad have had success whether it be in academics, sports or pursuing a modeling career. With being raised by such role models Sylvester and Jennifer, we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for these ladies.”

A while back was announced that eight-time Golden Globe-winner, Meryl Streep will be the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. deMille Award and Jimmy Fallon will host the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

“It’s no surprise that the HFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Meryl’s enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen. Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage. For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.”
