The 2013 Oscar Nominations are in and the expected nominees like Daniel Day Lewis (Lincoln), Denzel Washington (Flight) and Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) will be in attendance along with films, Django Unchained, Argo, Lincoln and Beast of The Southern Wild!   However, the pleasant surprise of the day would be our Oscar Cinderella story for little Quvenzhane’ Wallis from Beast of the Southern Wild!  CNikky predicted previously that she would clean up this award season, but shockingly she was snubbed at every major award show this season with NO nominations.  But, the adorable 9 year old actress picked up a nomination at the award show that matters most…THE OSCARS!!!

The producer reacted to the nomination by saying:

Beasts Of The Southern Wild
“Never in a million years would I have imagined this! It was a long, long time ago that we began, and weren’t even thinking about stuff like this, not only to be nominated, but to have four nominations, we’re just freaking out over here. This film has been one moment of joy after another. We made this film so far outside of the normal system of making films, we weren’t backed by a major studio, but made it with Cinereach, a nonprofit that is changing the world with movies they’re putting out. We said, We want to make a movie with 6 year old who’s never acted before…that’s the miracle of the movie. We are also so proud that Quvenzhané Wallis is taking us into the history books [as the youngest nominee for Best Actress].” — producer Michael Gottwald
