The role of Miss Golden Globe is quite an honor—one that has been bestowed upon Hollywood spawn for the past 50 years. This year, Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, will carry the torch at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards. On Thursday afternoon, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association hosted an intimate blogger luncheon to celebrate Bacon. Glam caught up with the aspiring actress, who wore a Black Halo jumper for the occasion, to find out how she’s prepping for her duties.
So you’re Miss Golden Globe…that’s quite the distinction.
It’s a really fun way to honor my parents since they are so amazing and have had such incredible careers in the industry.
What advice did your parents give you?
Don’t trip on your heels. Learn to walk in them before you take the stage. I’m the girl who never wears heels and brings flats out with me at night, so standing up there will definitely be a challenge.
Have you been breaking yours in?
I’ll bring them to the rehearsal so I can try them out a little bit during the day.
This isn’t your first time at the Globes; do you remember your first experience?
I came with my mom when I was 15 and it was the year she won. I was so nervous for her; I get far more anxious for my mom and dad than I do for myself.
Are you nervous?
