9-Year Old Girl In Line For Best Actress Award

share on:

After her role as Hushpuppy, a little girl who lives with her father in the golden indie film ‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’, 9-year old Quvenzhané Wallis is one of the actresses in line to be nominated for the Best Actress of 2012.

Quvenzhané Wallis was a mere 5 years old when she was among 4,000 girls who auditioned for the role of Hushpuppy in Behn Zeitlin’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” Now 9, Wallis is on the short list of potential Best Actress nominees, an honor which would make her the youngest actress to ever receive that honor. (Jackie Cooper, at 9 years and 20 days, would still be the youngest Oscar nominee ever; Wallis’ turned 9 back in August.)
