Today Show: Quvenzhane Wallis Youngest Actress Nominated For Best Actress

Quvenzhane Wallis has shocked the entertainment business with her performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild, a performance which garnered her a Oscar nomination for best actress, making her the youngest person to ever be nominated for the award.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is about a small bayou town community called the Bathtub, a community cut off from the rest of the civilized world by a levee, where the folks have “more holidays than the rest of the world.” After a flood destroys the community, Hushpuppy, Wallis’ character, must learn how to survive on her own, without a mother, from her dying father. Wallis’ character seems to face insurmountable odds for such a young protagonist, Wallis being only six-years-old during the filming of the movie, as she struggles with death, the loss of her home and being forced to leave the Bathtub.
