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."
