Joyce Mina Godenzi (simplified Chinese: 高丽虹; traditional Chinese: 高麗虹; pinyin: Gāo Lìhóng; Jyutping: Gou1 Lai6 Hung4; born 1965) was the winner of Miss Hong Kong 1984 and is a former Hong Kong film actress.

Godenzi was encouraged to join the Miss Hong Kong pageant by her modeling agency, which had groomed one of its models, Maggie Cheung, to compete the year before. Heavily favored, she won the title, in addition to the Miss Photogenic award. After her unsurprising victory, many expected her to do well in Miss Universe 1984 in Miami, (her father is Australian and her mother is Chinese). She was unplaced eventually, but did win third prize in the national costume competition.

After her reign, Godenzi started a film career and was in several action films. She appeared in several films alongside kung fu film actor Sammo Hung before marrying him in 1995. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 1988 Hong Kong Film Awards for her role in Eastern Condors. Godenzi has since retired from acting.
