WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden Globe season has officially begun with the crowning of aspiring actress Sosie Bacon, the daughter of Globe winners Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, as Miss Golden Globe 2014.
Chosen each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Miss Golden Globe assists with the Globes ceremony and is typically the daughter of Hollywood celebrities. The outgoing recipient is Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher.
The announcement was made Thursday evening at a star-studded affair held at the tony West Hollywood restaurant Fig and Olive.
"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," said Sosie Bacon in a statement.
The Golden Globes will be presented Jan. 12.
