Gotta hand it to Karrueche Tran ... girl dreams big -- on the heels of getting a tiny taste of Hollywood's award season she's already eyeing an Oscar-winning career.
Karrueche was leaving a party for "The Bay" -- the online soap opera she's on, which just got a Daytime Emmy nomination -- and we asked where she saw her career going.
KT replied, "I wanna be like Halle Berry."
Mind you, Karrueche did NOT get an Emmy nomination, only the show did -- still that's not stopping her from aiming high. And this is weird ... but Karrueche's not even sure Halle's her fave actress.
Check out who's in the running.
