Gia Mantegna has been named Miss Golden Globe 2011

Gia Mantegna has been named Miss Golden Globe 2011.

The 20-year-old actress – who is the daughter of former award nominee Joe Mantegna and his restaurateur wife Arlene - feels “honoured” to have been awarded the prestigious title by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

She said: "I have grown up watching the Golden Globes with my family and feel so fortunate to be part of such a magical evening, so early on in my career."

Previous Miss Golden Globes include Melanie Griffith - daughter of Hitchcock's leading lady Tippi Hedren - who gave out the awards in 1975.

Rumer Willis - whose parents are Bruce Willis and Demi Moore - was named Miss Golden Globe in 2008, but the subsequent ceremony was cancelled due to the Hollywood writer's strike.

Kevin Costner's daughter Lily was Miss Golden Globe in 2004 and in 1995 the title was given to a boy, Clark Gable's son John.

Gia - who is dating 'Hannah Montana' actor Mitchel Musso - started her acting career at the age of 13 when she appeared in the film 'Uncle Nero' alongside her father.

She has since appeared on 'Secret Life of the American Teenager,' 'Criminal Minds' and NickTeen series 'Gigantic' alongside Meryl Streep's daughter Grace Gummer.

The president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk, commented: "We are thrilled to have Gia as this year's Miss Golden Globe.

"She is just as talented as she is beautiful and will surely be a great addition to the show."

The 68th Golden Globe Awards – which honour the best in film and television – will be presented on January 16 at the Beverly Hilton hotel in California.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - A young woman from Fort Wayne is battling a rare form of cancer. Ashley Weimer, 20, was diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumor in 2008. Since then, she has endured surgery, radiation treatments, chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant. This past summer, the doctors told Ashley her cancer had returned. It spread to her lungs and spine.

She loves the hit CBS drama “Criminal Minds” and recently got a rare treat; a trip to Hollywood and a visit with some of her favorite actors. A family friend had connections to the show and made arrangements for her to stop by during a filming. “When I was little, I always thought it would be so cool to be a profiler. And when I saw the show I was like oh my God, it's totally my show!” Ashley said.

The director of the show also used Ashley as an extra in a recent episode. “I was like, oh my gosh! What do I do?” she said. “And he said just act like you're doing something. So I just pretended to type something on the computer.”

Ashley has kept in touch with the cast via email and there’s even a character named after her who will be featured in the next three episodes. She hopes to bring more attention to rare types of cancer by sharing her story.

Criminal Minds: TVGuide Meet the BAU's Newest Team Member (SPOILER!)

Criminal Minds: Meet the BAU's Newest Team Member

Rachel Nichols knows she's in kind of a tough spot.

The former Alias actress, who joins Criminal Minds with a three-episode arc beginning Wednesday, is fully aware that longtime viewers of the show are still mourning the loss of veteran cast member A.J Cook, who was let go from the show this season. But Nichols says the show allows the other characters to somewhat speak what the audience may be feeling about the new girl in town.

"I knew that JJ had left and then there was a lot of uproar. People were all wondering, who is this girl coming in?" Nichols told last month. "What they wanted to do was introduce this character and have people like her because you can't have people angry and hate her right off the bat. There are some scenes in the first episode where [the characters] kind of talk about it, and they're definitely a little wary. But it was all intended to be a very warm welcome for this girl who was going to be here a short period of time."

But that period of time might not be short after all. reported last week that Nichols was in talks to become a series regular. CBS and ABC Studios, which produces the show, would not confirm the report, though Nichols hasn't shied away from tweeting her feelings about the news.

In any case, viewers will get to make up their own minds Wednesday, when Nichols' character, Ashley Seaver, a cadet at the FBI academy, is brought in to help the BAU catch a serial killer in a gated community. Even though she's still technically in training, she has a very specific insight into this case, according to Rossi (Joe Mantegna), who crossed paths with Ashley in the past.

"This episode deals with a gated community — everybody has the white picket fence, kids, a dog and a station wagon," Nichols says. "They're trying to look for an unsub who really carries off life as a perfectly normal individual. The experience Ashley grew up in [was] the seemingly idyllic childhood with a very dark underbelly. Rossi thinks they need someone with a new perspective and because of the way she was raised, she may have this perspective."

But is she ready for down-and-dirty field work? "She's green; she's not an agent who's been out in the field a lot," Nichols says. "But she asks if she can finish out her training sessions with the BAU because that's ideally where she'd like to end up one day. For the first time ever, she's looking at very gruesome crimes and seeing a lot of blood, and severed limbs. She's the one who asks a lot of the questions and it's helping her figure out if she wants to do this seriously or not."

And if she's going to be sticking around, she'll have to make some bonds pretty quickly.

Enter Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), who was handpicked at age 21 to join the BAU by Gideon (Mandy Patinkin). "They have a bond by having grown up as outsiders," Nichols says. "She's fascinated by Dr. Reid because he's got that memory, and she knows he can give her insight into her past because she doesn't have a lot of details on it. They could certainly develop something there with the two of us having a lot of similarities."

Criminal Minds
airs Wednesday at 9/8c on CBS.

SPOILER Adrianne Palicki to Guest Star on Criminal Minds

From TVGuide

Even though her Fox series, Lone Star, got an early axe, Adrianne Palicki is still one busy actress. She will be back forFriday Night Lights' final two episodes and is currently shooting a guest starring role on Criminal Minds, set to air in 2011.

"It's in the vain of Natural Born Killers or Kalifornia," says Adrianne of the killer Minds episode. "I never played a raging psychopath before so I couldn't turn it down. I'm having so much fun."

The actress describes her character, Sydney, as a woman "who comes from a broken home where her father molested her. She is an alcoholic who found love with a man named Ray. She and Ray get their kicks by drinking and killing people for no reason." Sounds along the lines of what could have happened to her FNL character, Tyra, had she continued hanging out with that no-good Tim Riggins!
