Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s daughter, Sosie Bacon has been named Miss Golden Globe for the 2014 edition of the popular awards show.
The role of Miss Golden Globe is given to a different celebrity’s daughter each year, and during the broadcast they are presented to the audience.
As Miss Golden Globe, Sosie Bacon will be able to stand on the stage throughout the broadcast, and meet a lot of the people that are winning, and presenting the awards to people.
She is 21-years-old, and as the daughter to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, she certainly is no stranger to the award shows.
Everyone planning to watch the show can get excited to see Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting once again, and Sosie excited to meet them both.
While Sosie says that she is most excited to meet Claire Danes, citing her love for Homeland, she also says “I’m most excited about watching Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. I watched them last year, I couldn’t stop laughing. I think its going to be awkward.”
Both of Sosie Bacon’s parents have won Golden Globes in the past, and she follows in the footsteps of some people that have gone on to become celebrities in their own right, such as Melanie Griffith and Laura Dern. Last year’s Miss Golden Globe was Clint Eastwood’s daughter, Francesca Eastwood.
The news was announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press, the organization who puts on the Golden Globes. Upon hearing the news, Sosie Bacon said “I’ve been to the Golden Globes once before and it was such fun. 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.”
Theo Kingma, president of the HFPA, said that the tradition of Mr. and Miss Golden Globe was started 50 years ago when it was decided that the son or daughter of established actors should be on stage to assist with the Golden Globe presentations.
Congrats to @kevinbacon on his beautiful daughter Sosie Bacon being named Miss Golden Globe 2014!

Sosie Bacon has had some acting experience already, but never in a starring role. She appeared in Loverboy when she was only 10, a film that her mother starred in, and Bacon directed. Since then, she has appeared in a few episodes of The Closer, and joined the off-Broadway musical, Fiction In Photographs.
Sosie Bacon is clearly excited about the role of being Miss Golden Globe, and as actors who have been to the show many times, her parents are very proud of her.
