They may have made our star-studded list, but PEOPLE’s Ones to Watch 2016 honorees have their eyes on some of Hollywood’s other rising stars.

Daya! I heard she’s here. I love her music,” musician Hailey Knox said of the “Hide Away” singer at PEOPLE’s Ones to Watch celebration in Los Angeles presented by Maybelline New York.

Daya, who snagged a spot on the list, couldn’t help but gush about fellow singer Troye Sivan.

“He’s killing it! I love his album. I love his sound,” she said at the event. Meanwhile, Luke Cage star Simone Missick said she has her eye on Insecure‘s Yvonne Orji.

Although the party celebrated rising stars in the industry, the honorees praised some of Hollywood’s veteran A-listers.

“I’ve been watching Ray Donovan and I know he’s not a rising star but he’s now my rising star. I love him,” Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd said of Liev Schreiber.

And Moonlight star Trevante Rhodes had a fanboy moment when talking about Jake Gyllenhaal.

“Jake Gyllenhaal is someone I always look to because I think his work is incredible,” he said.

PEOPLE’s Ones to Watch are featured in the magazine’s latest issue on newsstands now.
