Who was the youngest person to win an acting Oscar in the history of the Academy Awards?

  • Shirley Temple
  • Tatum O'Neal correct

    Tatum O'Neal was 10 years old when she snagged the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1974. She played "Addie" in the Peter Bogdonavich film "Paper Moon" a year earlier. Shirley Temple never won an official Oscar but did recieve a special "juvenile award" in 1935. Justin Henry received an Oscar nomination in 1980 for "Kramer vs. Kramer" when he was 8 years old and Quvenzhan̩ Wallis in 2013 for "Beasts of the Southern Wild" when she was 9. Neither won, but if either had, they would have set the new record. Source: Mic.com, IMDB
