Who needs a limo: Miley Cyrus may now drive herself to the Golden Globe Awards (with a licensed adult).

The 16-year-old Hannah Montana star got her learner's permit on Wednesday, and less than 24 hours later woke up at 5:30 a.m. Thursday to texts telling her she nabbed a Globe nomination for Best Original Song for "I Thought I Lost You," the theme song for her movie Bolt.

"I'm so stoked! I never expected to get nominated," Cyrus tells PEOPLE. "I can't believe I'm on the same list as Clint Eastwood, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen and everyone else."

Producers on the set of Hannah Montana celebrated by giving her flowers, but Cyrus admits she has "no idea" what she's going to wear for the big night. "I think it's going to be long," she says.

As for who will escort her down the red carpet, Cyrus says: "I would love to have two dates. I would love John Travolta to be my date because this is our movie, and Jeffrey [Steele] because he wrote the song with me and he's such a good friend."

The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast Jan. 11 from The Beverly Hilton at 8 p.m. on NBC.
