Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon's daughter, Sosie Bacon, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2014. The title comes with duties, and isn't simply indicative of a pretty face. Typically the daughter of Hollywood celebrities, Miss Golden Globe assists in various ways with the actual Golden Globes ceremony.
The outgoing 2013 Miss Golden Globe is Francesca Eastwood. Her famous parents are the now-estranged Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher. Past recipients include Sam Fox (son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan--he must have been a Mr. Golden Globe?), Rainey Qualley (daughter of Andie MacDowell), Gia Mantegna (daughter of Joe Mantegna) and Rumer Willis (daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis).
Sosie Bacon got word of her new title on Thursday at the West Hollywood restaurant Fig and Olive.
“I’ve been to the Golden Globes once before and it was such fun,” she says. “I was about 16 years old and I went with my mother the year she won. My parents have always had such a good relationship with the HFPA and the Golden Globes, so they are very supportive of me being Miss Golden Globe. I think the HFPA is a great organization and does so much charity work, which is something I’ve been involved in too. Also, I love the fact that it supports both television and film, which most award shows don’t do.”
The aspiring actress has enjoyed a rather busy lifestyle recently as she actively pursues roles.
“I’m really looking forward to the next few months. I go back and forth between New York and L.A. and I’ve been auditioning pretty much non-stop…dramatic roles, some comedy…everything," she says.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick will have to make sure Sosie makes time for the interviews she will need to do between now and January in preparation for her role as Miss Golden Globe. They must be incredibly proud of their daughter and excited about this new honor the Hollywood Foreign Press has bestowed upon her.
