The torch has been passed!

Greer Grammer, daughter of Kelsey Grammer and ex Barrie Buckner, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2015 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"It will be an honor to be on a stage where people are winning this esteemed award," the actress said tonight at a party co-hosted by the HFPA and InStyle at Fig & Olive restaurant in West Hollywood.

Like all of the title holders who have come before, Greer is the picture of loveliness—but unlike some of the showbiz scions who have scored the honor in the past, the 22-year-old already has made a name for herself as a thesp, playing Lissa on MTV's Awkward.

But Greer, who attended USC and was Miss Regional California Teen in 2011, has had old Hollywood glamour in her blood from day one. She tweeted in 2009, "watching a movie w/ Greer Garson in it. shes the actress I was named after. shes absolutely radiant. I can only hope to live up to the name."

She is the second of Kelsey's six children from four different relationships.

Greer, whose full name is Kandace Greer Grammer, also thanked her mother for being her rock and both of her parents for supporting her choice to pursue an acting career.

In a statement, she also said, "I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year's Miss Golden Globe. It's truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of."

Miss Golden Globe selections over the past 10 years include Dakota Johnson, Rumer Willis and both Kathryn and Francesca Eastwood. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter Sosie Bacon did the honors last year.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globes airs live on NBC  from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 11, 2015. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are returning as co-hosts.
