As the daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Sosie Bacon has met her share of stars. But now that she's been crowned Miss Golden Globe 2014, the aspiring actress hopes she can cross paths with one of her childhood heroes.
"I'm really looking forward to meeting Claire Danes," Bacon, 21, told PEOPLE Thursday at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle's Miss Golden Globe party in Los Angeles.
"I've been a fan of hers since I was watching My So-Called Life when I was 12 years old, going through everything that she was going through. And the fact that I get to watch her now on Homeland, she is such an incredible actress. Everything she does is so amazing. I really look up to her a lot."

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter, Sosie Bacon, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2014 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Sosie, 21, has worked in film and television alongside her parents, making her debut in the 2005 movie Loverboy, which her father directed. She also appeared with her mom in The Closer, playing the niece of Sedgwick's character, Brenda Leigh Johnson.
"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 in announcing the selection at a party in West Hollywood co-hosted by InStyle magazine.

Is Six Degrees of Ken Jeong about to take off as the new Hollywood parlor game?
The Hangover's breakout star has worked with his share of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive – paging Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper – and the actor says he's not far from becoming his own version of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in which players attempt to link Bacon to every other actor on planet earth.
"I may have possibly, yes, worked with some of the Sexiest Men Alive. I might be the Kevin Bacon of Sexiest Men," Jeong said jokingly to PEOPLE at Tuesday night's premiere of his new animated 3D movie Turbo, starring Reynolds. (It opens nationally July 17.)
"I've got, like, different degrees of Sexiest Man [in my life]."
But out of the two men, Reynolds and Cooper (who starred with Jeong in all three Hangover movies), who would Jeong say really owns the crown?

Veteran actor Kevin Bacon, 54, stars in the new FOX thriller The Following. This week he took time to chat about his "lasts" with PEOPLE.
Last gift I bought
My wife [Kyra Sedgwick] always wanted a bathtub. So I secretly had one put in our New York home. Every time she takes a bath now, she tells me, "Thank you so much, honey. I just had the greatest bath!"
Last time I took public transportation
I take the subway every day. It's the fastest way to get around the city. When I'm on the train, I play Solitaire, Angry Birds and Backgammon on my phone.

He plays a former FBI agent on the trail of a serial killer in his new series The Following, but in real life Kevin Bacon has more pressing cases to solve – like the mysterious origins of his beloved dogs Lilly and Rocky.
The actor, 54, was so curious about the breeds of the rescue dogs he shares with his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick, and their two children that he set up his very own doggy DNA lab with a kit he purchased online.
"We did DNA testing, which is fun and something that just became possible," he tells PEOPLE. "What you do is swab the cheek of a mutt and you send it in. What comes back is what breeds are in the animal, which is really cool."
