At this Sunday's Oscars, the tiniest nominee may make the biggest impact: Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest actress to be nominated for an Academy Award. Now 9, Quvenzhané was just 5 years old when she won the leading role as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Quvenzhané and Jennifer are following in the footsteps of other young women and little girls who have taken past Academy Awards by storm with their wins and noms.
