On Thursday evening, The Golden Globe held its 71st ceremony at the West Hollywood Restaurant Fig and Olive, in which Miss Golden Globe 2014 was awarded to a special honoree.
Sosie Bacon, the daughter of Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, was the recipient of the role.
Sosie’s father was infamous for his role in the 1984 film, “Foot Loose,” making him a very admired pop-culture icon. However, Sedgwick is currently the star of “The Closer,” which won her an Emmy award as the best lead actress in a drama series.
“As we all know, she comes from a very talented family and this gets us one degree closer to Kevin Bacon,” said HFPA President Theo Kingma.
Sedgwick went on Twitter Thursday to express her excitement for her daughter.
So excited and thrilled about Sosie!

Every year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association crowns the son and daughter of well-known celebrities for a special duty. Those selected assist in handing out awards.
This year’s Mr. Golden Globe, Sam, is the son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan. He will be standing alongside Sosie in the ceremony events.
According to Sosie, the nomination process consists of a simple interview.
“They just ask if you want to do it and then I met with the [Hollywood Foreign Press Association]. We had a nice meeting — they asked me some questions about myself, like a job interview, sorta. Pretty painless,” Bacon said in a Q&A with the Hollywood Reporter.
In a statement to Fox News, the 21-year-old aspiring actress expressed her humble acceptance.
“As a young actress who is just beginning my career, it is truly an honor to be a part of such a special night in film and television,” she said.
Sosie has been featured in movies and TV series with her parents such as playing the niece of her mother in “The Closer.”
Last year’s honoree was the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher, Francesca Eastwood.
The ceremony will air January 12 on NBC at 8 p.m.
