Btw: Her first name has an apostrophe (according to her) - Quvenzhane'.

I saw an interview with this amazing child. Her ability to express herself & candidness blew me completely away! The clips from the film were astounding in their gritty intensity! Dwight Henry is up for a nomination as Best Supporting. He's not even an actor! He runs a bakery in N.O.'s 7th Ward & was approached to take on the role! A truly talented pair that must be seen!

I agree completely with MAMADOC. The young Miss Wallis was amazing! The emotion she conveyed just using her face was jawdroppingly refreshing. Especially in an age where actors are known more for their looks than actual ability to act. I definitely think she should be nominated and win. I for one can't wait to see what this young talent does 15-20yrs from now. I have a feeling she will be a mighty force to be reckoned with!

To be honest, I can't really even remember much about the actors in the other roles, but I remember her.

I am THRILLED that she got nominated! She was AMAZING & 100% worthy of the nomination. I looked at who else was nominated in the same category and I see no reason why she should not win.
