NEW YORK (CBS) TeenNick star Gia Mantegna has been named Miss Golden Globe 2011 for the 68th annual awards show.
The 20-year-old actress is the daughter of previous Golden Globe nominee (for "The Rat Pack") Joe Mantegna, who has also starred in "The Godfather III." Mantegna made her acting debut alongside her father at the young age of 13 in the 2003 film "Uncle Nino."
Mantegna has appeared on the "Secret Life of the American Teenager" and her father's show, "Criminal Minds." She also stars in the TeenNick series "Gigantic," alongside Grace Gummer, 24, who is the daughter of Meryl Streep, People reports.
