Francesca Eastwood has just made her famous father's day! The young star has earned the title of Miss Golden Globe 2013.

"Francesca comes from a very talented family and we are delighted to have her be our Miss Golden Globe," announced Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Dr. Aida Takla-O'Reilly. "She is a budding actress and is a great addition as we celebrate the show's 70th anniversary!"

This won't be the first time that television viewers have been offered a glimpse of the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher. She previously appeared on the E! reality series, "Mrs. Eastwood & Company," which followed the trials and tribulations of her step-mother Dina Eastwood.

The beautiful blonde will help comedic duo, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, pass out a bevy of awards to help kick off awards season on January 13, 2013.

In earning the title of Miss Golden Globe, the young star joins a growing collection of famous offspring to help pass out the annual awards. Here are some of the past winners of the title:

Rainey Qualley: Just last year, the daughter of Andie McDowell earned the title of Miss Golden Globe. The budding actress and musician has leveraged the exposure she received from helping Ricky Gervais hand out the golden statues into her first staring role playing the daughter of none other than Andie McDowell in the film, "Mighty Fine", which arrived in theaters earlier this year.

Rumer Willis: The oldest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis has followed in her famous parents' footsteps. Her first minor roles were alongside her mom in the films, "Now and Then" and "Striptease" in the mid-90s. Things really took off for the young star after being named Miss Golden Globe in 2008 at the age of 20. These days, she keeps busy with a variety of acting roles in both film ("The House Bunny" and "Sorority Row") and on television ("90210").

Laura Dern: She's come a long way since appearing as the fresh-faced Miss Golden Globe back in 1982. The daughter of Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd was a budding young star in the early eighties, and has gone on to win a shelf-full of accolades over her Hollywood career which has spanned three decades. Just last year, she walked away with the award of Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy for her role in the HBO series, "Enlightened."

Kathryn Eastwood: All in the family! Francesca's half sister served as Miss Golden Globe in 2005. Kathryn is the daughter of Clint Eastwood and flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves. Although she has not had any major acting roles to date, the young actress had the honor of presenting her dad with the Golden Globe for Best Director for "Million Dollar Baby."
