10 Actors Who Were Nominated And Won For Oscars At The Young Age

As time flies, the Oscars ceremony gains more and more attraction and eventually a huge Hollywood event. It is considered the most prestigious award show recognizing the film industry. For many people, an Oscar statue is worth 1 dollar but for actors, getting it is a dream that marks career achievement. Sometimes, they persistently work hard throughout their careers, but only get nominations in the later stages. For example, Leonardo DiCaprio, an actor with a huge profile, has been snubbed by the Oscar until much later in their career.

However, some actors are lucky enough to gain outstanding achievements at a young age. The performances from their childhood years catch international attention and then kickstart a career in the film industry by nominating or winning an Academy award.

Here is a list of actors who were nominated or won Oscar awards, starting with the youngest.

#1 Anna Paquin in “The Piano”
