Critics’ Choice Awards Well Played: Quvenzhané Wallis

Well, now that she’s been nominated for an Oscar, we need to prepare ourselves…

… for the ADORABLENESS that is ahead of us. I totally want to give this girl the biggest hug and then put on some 1D as the kids are calling it these days and dance around her bedroom and then paint our fingernails something glittery and talk about whether the guy who sits two desks over in Social Studies actually picks his nose or just wants her to stare at him. In short, I have never, ever wished to be nine again (except during Annie, obviously), until maybe right this second. If she became besties with Kiernan Shipka this season, my SQUEEEEEE Meter might actually blow up.

    On CBS this morning they talked about how she was asked if she’s bringing a date to the Oscars, to which she replied, “no, not a date, a parent.” The “duh!” was implied. She’s awesome.

    Just imagine the delightful long, sparkly tulle-skirt confections coming at this adorable little girl right now! I hope her people are talking to Hailee Steinfeld’s people right now for the home stretch of awards season.

    Ohmigod so cute. Love this little peanut and her sparkly but not too much dress. Adorable.

  7. Pouncer

    Perfection! She is so cute, and makes me smile :)

    Awwww! IDK if she really is the best actress this year, but she looks lovely. It great that her best party-dress is sparkly without being twee.

    Nailed it!

    Seriously, if you’ve seen this film you will know this child looks amazing in underwear and gumboots, so basically she can wear anything and look utterly adorable. She is also an unbelievable actress in an astonishing film. LOVE her.

      YES YES YES. I wept like an ugly baby at that movie. I cried more than I think I have in the past year.

    She also had a glittery puppy purse! Truly, the cutest!

  12. Chrissy

    So cute!

    Ohmygosh. So perfectly adorable and sweet that my head may explode from squeeeee. Perfect.

    Love this sweet look! But it seems like Kiernan Shipka is 12 going on 22, age-wise. I’m not sure they would have much to talk about?
