FILE - In this Jan. 10, 2013 file photo, Quvenzhane Wallis is seen backstage with her award for best young actress for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," at the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. Wallis is an actress of talent, poise and maturity well beyond her years. She was 6 when she played the part of Hushpuppy, and at only 9, she is the youngest-ever best actress nominee at the Academy Awards. (Photo by John Shearer/Invision/AP, File)
