You Done Good, Girl!: Quvenzhané Wallis
BGLU would like to send out a HUGE congratulations to Quvenzhané for becoming the youngest person ever nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award. Her performance in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" was nothing short of amazing and awe-inspring. Just 5 years old when she auditioned, Quvenzhané gives a powerful performance as Hushpuppy, a Louisiana Bayou kid balancing childhood innocence with grown up issues that no child should ever have to face.
"Beasts of the Southern Wild" is thought-provoking and heart-wrenching with air of fantasticality that I did not expect. I loved it from start to tear inducing finish.
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS Quvenzhané!! You da man!!!!
