Sosie Bacon initially feared she might trip when she went on stage as Miss Golden Globe at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards–a la Jennifer Lawrence at last year’s Oscars–but that never happened. In fact, the 21-year-old likely made her parents–Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick–very proud.
“That’s my biggest fear…I’m so bad at walking in heels. Clumsy is an understatement. I trip all the time,” she said during an interview prior to the show.
So besides having famous parents, exactly who is Sosie Bacon? She is actually following in her parent’s footsteps as an actor. She appeared in a 2005 film called Loverboy and she even appeared on her mom’s former hit show The Closer.
Sosie is a college student. She will graduate from Brown University in 2014 and she belongs to a theater company in New York City called CAP21. Kristen Bell, Lady Gaga and Anne Hathaway are just three notables who are CAP21 alumni.
Being Miss Golden Globe was definitely a high point of Sosie Bacon’s New Year. She took to Twitter to share some of the exciting highlights with her followers–both during and after the big event.

Do you think being Miss Golden Globe will in any way boost Sosie’s career? When Michael J. Fox’s son was the subject of a Tina Fey jab during his stint on the Golden Globes–she told Taylor Swift to stay away from him–he was googled like crazy for the next couple of days. Between her education, her list of prior acting gigs and her good acting genes, it’s pretty likely the world will be seeing a lot more of Sosie Bacon.
