Pierce Brosnan‘s sons have been named the 2020 Golden Globe Ambassadors!
Dylan, 22, and Paris, 18, have been selected for the prestigious honor at the upcoming awards show. This is the first time the position will be held by two brothers.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna made the announcement during a ceremony on Thursday night (November 14) at the Catch in West Hollywood, Calif.
Each year, the HFPA chooses a child of one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, director, or producers to help them raise money and awareness for a nonprofit organization of their choice.
“We’re proud to honor our dad’s legacy as we join the incredible roster of previous Golden Globe Ambassadors, many of whom have gone on to pursue their own dreams in the entertainment industry,” Dylan said during the event. “The biggest lesson our dad taught us is to ‘be kind,’ which was an essential factor in Paris and my decision to study filmmaking and our desire to tell important stories. Having this opportunity to turn the spotlight outward on kids experiencing hunger is a true privilege.”
Paris added: “As students, my brother and I understand the value of education and its importance in equipping the next generation with skills to succeed. I’ve never had to worry about where my next meal might come from – I’m lucky in that respect; but I know that millions of children worldwide don’t have that luxury. School meals provide critically important nutrition, and also incentivize parents to keep kids in school, giving them a fighting chance for a better life.”
The organization the brothers have partnered with is FEED, which delivers nutritious meals to school-aged children around the world.
Paris and Dylan will also be helping out during the ceremony next year by ushering presenters on and off stage and handing out awards.
The 2020 Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, January 5 on NBC.
