This year’s Miss Golden Globe was Sosie Bacon. Miss Bacon is the daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick and is an aspiring actress. Her job as Miss Golden Globe was to help hand out awards during the annual ceremony -- a job she executed quite well on Sunday night.
For those who do not understand what being Miss Golden Globe is all about, the honorary title is bestowed upon a hand-picked Hollywood heir who has aspirations in the acting business. Bacon, 21, has appeared in a number of TV shows including her mom’s TV show “The Closer” (2009) and her Dad’s movie “Loverboy” (2005), among other projects.
Sosie Bacon said her parents were really excited that she is this year’s honoree. She said they have been very supportive of her budding acting career.
"I'm starting to act myself ... they're excited for me to come out as my own person," she told Today.
Each year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association interviews contenders about their goals and aspirations. The interviews give the young actors a chance to meet the industry insiders and gain critical exposure.
The tradition of Miss or Mister Golden Globe dates back to 1963, when actress Eva Six became the first Miss Golden Globe. Since then, many of the honorees have gone on to have successful Hollywood careers of their own. Some of them include Melanie Griffith-1975, Laura Dern-1982 and Freddie Prinze-1996.
