What do you think? Was anyone snubbed? Given a nomination they didn't deserve?

Personally, I'm surprised and excited that 9-year-old star of the film "Beast of the Southern Wild" Quvenzhané Wallis is up for Best Actress for her role as Hushpuppy, a tough but imaginative little girl who must fend for herself when her dad gets sick. Aside from the fact that she’s insanely adorable and absolutely deserves the nomination, Quvenzhané is the youngest Best Actress nominee ever. Ever! I mean, what were you doing at 9? Not getting nominated for an Oscar, probably. Or starring in a movie, for that matter. I think I was obsessed with the Spice Girls at that point, and I was probably pretending to be Scary Spice, so, yeah. Plus, Quvenzhané says she didn’t even know what an Oscar was when she got the news; she calls the coveted award "the Golden Man". If that isn’t enough to get her a win, I don’t know what is.
