Fave Part Of 2013 Oscars So Far: 9-Year-Old Nominee Quvenzhané Wallis

Quvenzhané Wallis just wants to win an Oscar, give her speech and then go home and eat pizza. Pepperoni pizza. Stop asking her if she feels like a princess.

The 9-year-old actress, nominated for Best Actress for her role in ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild,’ was adorably inspiring with her un-self-conscious answers to the standard red carpet questions. Instead of dissembling when asked whether she had a speech ready, she confidently noted that yes, she did, but she may stray from it in the heat of the moment. This is a girl who’s ready to win, Anne Hathaway be damned.

When asked whether she felt like “a princess” — a question 9-year-olds and 39-year-olds alike seemed to get on the red carpet, unfortunately (why is princess the only model for female glamour in American pop culture? We’ve never even had princesses) — she was all, yeah, I guess; this dress was just my favorite color and ‘sparkly and fluffy,’ guys.

And when asked how she plans to relax post Oscar-hoopla? Pizza. Preferably pepperoni or “Margherita cheese.”

Good luck, little lady. You are my favorite part of the Oscars so far. You and the guy in the kilt.
