21 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In 2013, a then-9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis received the Best Actress Oscar nomination for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," making her the youngest nominee in the category's history. This year, the Best Actress nominees are a little bit older. But that doesn't mean we can't look back in wonder at the remarkable achievements of Hollywood's most powerful pint-sized talents.

From Shirley Temple, the youngest Oscar honoree ever at six years old, to 10-year-old winner Tatum O'Neal, the youngest winner ever, sometimes Hollywood's next generation of stars do get recognized for their early achievements.

In honor of this year's Oscars, let's take a look back at some of the youngest Oscar winners and nominees in Academy Awards history.

He maintained a decades-long friendship with Dolores Hart, who abandoned her acting career for the cloistered life of a Benedictine nun. DeNeut became a frequent guest at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn., working with Reverend Mother Dolores in developing the Patricia Neal autobiography “As I Am” (1977), and later on Mother Dolores’ own memoir, “The Ear of the »

The Twitter campaign, which allows anyone to send a cocktail using the hashtag and tagging @CriticsChoice, has garnered quite a bit of buzz from Internet fanbases - especially diehard Hannibal and Mr. Robot devotees.

Four Men and a Prayer

9 January 2016 12:42 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It's the John Ford film you never heard of, not because it's bad, but because it's a little confused. Richard Greene, David Niven and an emotional George Sanders (!) dedicate their lives to clearing their father's name of a smear by international arms smugglers! Their spirited companion Loretta Young behaves almost as if this were a screwball comedy. So does the director! Ford aficionados will be fascinated. Four Men and a Prayer 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives 1938 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 85 min. / Street Date December 15, 2015 / 19.98 Starring Loretta Young, Richard Greene, George Sanders, David Niven, C. Aubrey Smith. J. Edward Bromberg, William Henry, John Carradine, Alan Hale, Reginald Denny, Berton Churchill, Barry Fitzgerald, Chris-Pin Martin. Cinematography Franz Planer Film Editor Louis R. Loeffler Written by Richard Sherman, Sonya Levien, Walter Ferris from a novel by David Garth Produced by Kenneth Macgowan Directed by John Ford
