Willow Smith

  1. Quvenzhané Wallis, Annie, 2014.      Will Smith had made his son, Jaden. a star. Now it was Willow’s turn. But that was in 2011 and with all the delays that ensued she growed like Topsy. Her successor was the then youngest ever Oscar nominee for Beasts of the Southrn Wild, 2000 (aged nine years, 135 days – a mere six in the film). New York Times critic AO Scott adored her as Annie: “a born movie star, with charisma to burn and a rare ability to magnetise an audience’s attention.”  The film not so much: “this hacky, borderline-incompetent production”! Which then added to its misfortune by opening the same day as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five ArmiesNolo contendere.
