Louisiana's Quvenzhane Wallis Youngest Best Actress Oscar Nominee and Recordbreaker! Louisiana Proud!





FROM: BizParentz Foundation, FROM: Debby Gaudet

CONGRATULATIONS to Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), age nine, who becomes the youngest best actress Oscar nominee in history!!! She breaks the record previously held by Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider...), who was 13 when she was nominated. The only two people younger than Wallis to ever receive an acting Oscar nomination were Jackie Cooper, who was also nine -- but a few days younger than Wallis is -- when he became a best actor nominee for Skippy (1931), and Justin Henry, who was eight when he became a best supporting actor nominee for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979). Justin was our CARE honoree in 2010.
