New media darling Quvenzhané Wallis is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s special “Oscar” issue.

The Beasts of the Southern Wild’s breakout star who is nominated for The Academy’s “Best Actress” award at the tender age of nine — which makes her the youngest ever to receive such an honor — enjoys engaging folks who want to feel some of the positive, youthful energy apparent in her toothy smile and radiant glow.

Here is what Black Celebrity Kids had to say about young Quvenzhané’s honors:

Her performance has left viewers from the Cannes to the Sundance Film Festivals in love with her portrayal of the lead role Hushpuppy, so much so that she has since won awards such as breakthrough performance from the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala to winning Best Young Actor/Actress at the Critic’s Choice Movie Awards. Now the young actress has made Academy Award history as the youngest person ever to be nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Quvenzhane is not ready to rest on her current success, having already landed her next role in the upcoming film, Twelve Years A Slave.”

Can’t help but enjoy her accession

    Dear SMH,

    You sound small minded.

    Sincerely,

    An educated person

    Why am I having de ja vu at all the cooing, oohing and ah-ing over this child?

    Oh yeh, it’s coming back to me.

    “white is right” negros always break out in tongue and start doing the ecstasy booty shake whenever whites lavish praise on some random negro

    Last time was Obama.

    All you gotta do is be black and get praise from white people and “white is right” negros will love you like you took em five steps closer to a fool’s promised land (wherever white people live)

    Don’t know a damn thing about these people, all they’re going off is negro got “luv” from white people so let’s join the parade.

    Ok how about we lavish this kind of love on all little black children, all the time, without waiting for white people to give us the go ahead?
