Los Angeles (Associated Press)-Spike Lee’s daughter and son were selected as Golden Globe ambassadors to assist in the award ceremony.
The Hollywood Foreign Media Association announced Tuesday morning that Saqier and Jackson Lee will serve as ambassadors for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards in February.
Satchel, 26, and Jackson, 23, were the first brothers of the same color to maintain the position. Jackson was the first black male ambassador.
Their maturity is attributed to Tonya Lewis Lee, the father and mother of the film and television producer.
“We are proud to be able to inherit our father̵
Satchel chose to work with Callen-Lorde, an organization that provides healthcare services to the LGBTQIA+ community in New York City. Jackson collaborated with Big Brothers Big Sisters, supported by volunteers.
He said: “As a visionary creative, my father taught Saqier and me the importance of entertainment as a catalyst for cultural change.”
Callen-Lorde (Callen-Lorde) and Big Brothers Big Sisters (Big Brothers Big Sisters) will each receive a grant of US$25,000 on behalf of Lees from HFPA.
Satchel said that choosing Callen-Lorde and the organization’s health care plan is very important for her to “support the LGBT+ community because that’s my community. I just want to give back to me for everything I do. A lot of people and communities.”
Jackson said that he chose “big brother and big sister” to guide himself like his father.
He said: “Let my father mentor change my life.” “To be able to give others opportunities and people younger than me, this is a reward for it. It feels like a responsibility I have to do.”
Traditionally, the ambassador is the child of a celebrity. He will assist in awarding, handing out trophies to the winners and accompany them to step down.
Previous ambassadors include Pierce Brosnan’s son Dylan and Paris Brosnan, and Idris Elba’s daughter Isan Elba Simone Garcia, daughter of Elba and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be held on February 28th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The show commended the achievements of the film and television industry.
