Spike Lee’s children were selected as ambassadors for the Golden Globes to assist with the awards ceremony.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Tuesday morning that Satchel and Jackson Lee will assume the roles of ambassadors for the 78th annual awards in February.
Satchel, 26, and Jackson, 23, are the first brothers of color to take on the task, while Jackson is the first black man to do so.
“We are proud to carry our dad’s storytelling legacy to draw attention to communities close to our hearts,” said Satchel Lee, who was creative director of DRØME, a queer, cross-industry arts and culture magazine.
Satchel decided to partner with Callen-Lorde, an organization that helps LGBTQIA + communities in New York. Jackson partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters, a volunteer-supported mentoring network.
As a visionary creative, my dad taught Satchel and me the importance of entertainment as a cultural catalyst for change, ”said Jackson.
Golden Globes ambassadors are traditionally the children of celebrities who assist during the ceremony by presenting the winners with trophies and escorting them off stage.
Among those who have done this work are Pierce Brosnan’s children, Dylan and Paris Brosnan; Idris Elba’s daughter, Isan Elba, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s daughter, Simone Garcia.
The Golden Globes ceremony will be held on February 28 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The show celebrates achievements in film and television.
