Oscar nominations are out, and our
bets hopes are on the little one for the Actress in a Leading Role Category: At nine, Quvenzhané Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild is the youngest person to ever be nominated for an Oscar. Or the oldest, French actress Emmanuelle Riva, at 85. Actually we'd be pretty okay with Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, or Naomi Watts, too. What can we say? It was a good year for leading ladies. [Oscar.go.com]
