The Awkward star will shine as Miss Golden Globe on Jan. 11

How did your dad, Kelsey Grammer, react?

I didn’t tell him [about being Miss Golden Globe] until the last minute, because he can’t keep a secret. But he’s proud!

Did you always want to be an actor?

Since I was a child, but my parents didn’t want me to be a child-star brat. They wanted me to know the difference between being famous and being an actor.

Who are you excited to meet at the Globes?

Reese Witherspoon. I’ll keep it together onstage, but if it’s at an afterparty, I might freak out.
