Golden Globes are moving full steam ahead – at least for now.
On Tuesday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that Satchel and Jackson Lee, children of Oscar-winning filmmaker Spike Lee, will act as Golden Globes ambassadors for next month’s ceremony. Hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the show will air live on Feb. 28 (NBC, 8 EST/5 PST) from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
The announcement comes a week after the Recording Academy revealed it would postpone the Grammy Awards from Jan. 31 to March 14 because of surging COVID-19 cases in California.
Nominations for this year’s Golden Globes will be announced Feb. 3.
Satchel, 26, and Jackson, 23, are the children of “Da 5 Bloods” director and his wife, producer Tonya Lewis Lee, who married in 1993. They are the first siblings of color to be named Globes ambassadors. Jackson is the first Black male ambassador.

An ambassador is traditionally the child of a celebrity who assists with award presentations, handing out trophies to winners and escorting them off stage.
Ambassadors also work to raise awareness around a philanthropic cause. Satchel is partnering with Callen-Lorde, an organization that helps with LGBTQIA+ communities in New York City, while Jackson is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the volunteer-supported mentoring network.
