Who the Man? I'm the Man!
This movie, Beast of the Southern Wild, is nominated for an Academy Award.
This little girl, Quvenzhnae Wallis, is the lead actor. She is seven. She is a miracle.
This earnest, beautiful child carries this movie like Tom Hanks did with Castaway.
She is nominated for an Academy Award also. I think she should win. It seems wrong for one so young to win such a big award. But, I am telling you, she does something none of the other women do, she is Hushpuppy.

The littlest survivor. Hushpuppy.
