Rainey Qualley, Andie MacDowell, Talk Miss Golden Globe

Tonight, Rainey Qualley, the daughter of Andy MacDowell, will have an important job during the 2012 Golden Globes. Qualley will be taking on the role of Miss Golden Globe tonight and will out the statuettes to actors and actresses.

It’s a Hollywood tradition for celebrity offspring to take on the role of Miss Golden Globe. Rumor Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Laura Dern, the daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, and Kathryn Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Gia Mantegna have all had the honor of being Miss Golden Globe. Still, MacDowell said that she was surprised to hear the news.

MacDowell told Access Hollywood:

“[It was] a complete surprise… [I’m] so thankful for her. She’s working really hard to try and make it in this business.”

MacDowell said that she wanted to give her daughter some pointers, but admitted that she’s never really been in that position before. MacDowell said:

“I watched the videos [showing what] she had to do. I had no idea how much responsibility there really was with it. There’s a lot of responsibility… You have to be articulate. She’s a smart girl and she’s got a beautiful heart, so I’m hoping it all goes really well for her… I don’t think that [all the star power] will scare her or intimidate her because she’s been with me on sets and stuff like that… “

The Wall Street Journal reports that after Rainey Qualley completes her duties as Miss Golden Globe, she’ll stay in LA for a while to audition for acting roles.

Qualley said:

“My boyfriend and I have been looking at apartments; hopefully we’ll find something soon. I’m planning to audition and write songs and meet with anybody I can. The best thing that would happen? I’d book a movie.”

Qualley just finished filming her first movie, “Mighty Fine.” The movie doesn’t have a release date yet but is currently in post-production. Qualley is also an aspiring musician.
