Several media outlets have criticized the 2016 Oscars not only due to the lack of nominee diversity, but also the alleged snub of an up-and-coming actor. Nine-year-old Jacob Tremblay stole hearts with his acceptance speech at the Critics’ Choice Awards

His strong portrayal as a child born from rape in captivity failed to achieve an Oscar nomination for his performance in the drama “Room.” Was Tremblay too young? Far from being a pint-sized novelty in Hollywood, child actors have a long history of competing for the prestigious award.

The team at PrettyFamous queried its celebrity database to compile the youngest Oscar nominees and winners.* This impressive group of 22 competed against Hollywood veterans before they reached their 18th birthdays.
