YBF KIDS: Quvenzhané Wallis WINS Best Young Actress At Critic's Choice Awards!


Nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis walked away with the Critic's Choices Award for best young actor/actress last night.  And that means she's the one to watch at the 2013 Oscars! Find out about her adorable acceptance speech and what's up next for this shining star....


With her smartphone in her hand, 9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis stole the hearts of viewers as she accepted her Critic's Choice Award for Best Young Actor/Actress last night. She told the crowd,

'First I would like to thank God for all my blessings.  I would also like to thank the film critic's for this award.' Thanks to Mr. Benh Zeitlin and the Court 13 family for thinking I could make a good Hushpuppy. Lastly, to my family, friends and fans—good night!',

Quvenzhané, a native of Houma, LA, stars in Beasts of the Southern Wild.  It's a film that explores how a young girl uses her fantasies to cope with living in a community separated from the Louisiana mainland after Hurricane Katrina.

She was chosen by director Benh Zeitlin from a pool of 4,000 hopefuls (she auditioned at the age of 5) and has gone on to make history as the youngest person in history to be nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award.


And now that she's signed on to star opposite Brad Pitt in a new historical drama called Twelve Years a Slave, and has the attention of famed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quvenzhané is one of Hollywood's brightest stars.

And about that Oscar nomination for Best Actress she just received, the cutie told USA Today:

"It's exciting, this is special.  I'm going to celebrate with pizza, chicken and waffles and good stuff."

Our kinda girl.  Congrats Quvenzhané!

Saw this movie last year when

Saw this movie last year when it came out.. was amazing. It was "advertised" as a kind of fantasy, where there were these "beasts" (huge wild hogs) that were coming to destroy the rest of the world after an apocalyptic melting of the ice caps. Really, it's kind of a fictional world post-Katrina. And it focuses on the poor people left in what they call the bath tub of Louisana... I.E. the pl devastated by the flooding who chose to stay with their belongings. And the story is about their survival and more importantly the relationship between Hushpuppy and her dad. It is VERY touching, but VERY VERY sad.. so be prepared to ball your eyes out when you watch it. It's also very funny though so you'll laugh/cry throughout the whole thing. The father really did an amazing job too.

Good for her! I saw her in

Good for her! I saw her in an interview the other night and it seems that she's starting to get a little ahead of herself (egotistical). I hope they keep her humble because little girl or not, it's NOT cool to be pompous. I wish her much luck with the Oscar though.

That's funny I saw the same

That's funny I saw the same interview and I thought she was confident, ambitious and knew she was talented and she had faith in herself and her future. A nine year don't know how to be a pompous.

Ummm, First, I saw two

Ummm, First, I saw two different interviews. Second, I saw one of the men say something to her and she was kind of mocking him when she said her answer. Whether she knew what she was doing or not, she did it. I know what I saw, I'm not a hater, yes, she's confident and all that good happy stuff, but I know what I saw.

I can't stand when singers

I can't stand when singers and actors win awards and then give this "Thank God" speech, as if with all the violence, killing, poverty, and starving going on in the world all God has time to do is make sure they win a best actress award. Chileplease
