Johnson, the actress daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, spent the whole evening worried she'd drop a trophy as she carried it out onstage - and the fear ruined her night.

She recalls, "It was terrifying... You bring the Golden Globes out and you give them to the very talented people... I was 16 and I was terrified.

"I was wearing these gloves and I kept thinking that they were gonna slip out of my hands; I was gonna be the girl that dropped a Golden Globe on the stage and, like, ruin everything. I don't even remember the night, honestly, I was so terrified.

"You have to move everyone... and you have to make the presenters move back to a certain line, so their nose isn't in the camera during the speech. It was such a job."

The daughters of celebrities are invited to hand out the awards and become Miss Golden Globe annually. Since Johnson's turn in 2006, the role has been filled by the kids of Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Roderick Spencer and Alfre Woodard, Joe and Arlene Mantegna, and Andie MacDowell and Paul Qualley.
