OSCAR NOMINEE QUVENZHANE WALLIS IS ALREADY ON EASY STREET
Nine year old Best Actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis (pronounced Kwe-VEN-zhah-nay) doesn’t need to win an Oscar – she already won the plum role of Annie in the modernized movie based on the Broadway musical. Will and Jada Smith are among the producers and their daughter Willow was eager to play the part, but the movie took a couple of years to develop and Willow simply got too tall. Besides the movie she was nominated for, “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” Quvenzhane has finished “Twelve Years a Slave” with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender. Something tells us she’ll be nipping at Willow’s heels for a long time to come.
