Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter Sosie Bacon is Miss Golden Globe 2014

Sosie Bacon — daughter of actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick — has been named Miss Golden Globe 2014.

The aspiring actress was chosen to assist the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with one of the biggest awards shows of the season, as well as to help present the winners at the event.

"As a young actress who is just beginning my career, it is truly an honour to be a part of such a special night in film and television," the 21-year-old said in a statement.


The title of Miss or Mr. Golden Globe is traditionally given to daughters and sons of celebrities; incidentally, both Kevin and Kyra are past Golden Globe winners.

Last year’s honourees were Sam Michael Fox (son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan) and Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher).

The designation has also helped many celebrity offsprings jumpstart their careers, including Melanie Griffith, Rumer Willis and Dakota Johnson, who were all “golden girls” at one point.

The Golden Globes are scheduled to air Jan. 12, 2014.
