Young actress Quvenzhané Wallis may not have won the best actress award at the 85th Annual Academy Awards Sunday night, but she definitely won the night, mostly by being adorable, but also because of her outsized talent.
The 9-year-old was the youngest person ever to be nominated for a lead acting Oscar.
She will next appear in the film Twelve Years a Slave, and was recently cast as Annie in an upcoming remake of the classic musical.
