Jamie was exuberant after his daughter received the honor -- which is often bestowed upon the children of celebrities such as past Miss Golden Globe honorees Dakota Johnson, Melanie Griffith and Rumer Willis -- and said that this is the perfect launching pad for his daughter's career in the entertainment industry.

"She's been around the business but not all the way in it," Jamie shared. "This is a perfect time now for her to be in it in the right way, and everybody's happy."
