— Abigail Breslin: She was one of the youngest-ever Oscar nominees at age 10 for her charming, vulnerable and ultimately inspiring performance as awkward pageant contestant Olive in the crowd-pleasing indie "Little Miss Sunshine." But she made an impression even earlier than that when she made her film debut at just 5 in M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs." Her varied work has ranged from the star-studded romantic comedy "Definitely, Maybe" to the heart-tugging "My Sister's Keeper" to the horror comedy "Zombieland" to the musical drama "Janie Jones," which showed off her singing and guitar-playing talents. (Like Fanning and Dunst, Breslin has a new movie in theaters this weekend, too: the thriller "The Call.") And she's only 16 now — it's all out there in front of her.
