August 28th is Quvenzhané Wallis day! It's a big holiday in the Bathtub, but we're not the only ones who love to celebrate her. Here's 11 images of our "King" as she turns 11 years young today. They'll make you want to laugh, cry, and beast it hard, just like our tiny hero herself. Hushbabies. They grow up so fast! (Click on each image to find your way to its source.)
We'll never forget that night, under a canopy of Brooklyn trees, when Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin recreated their original score for Beasts of the Southern Wild live for an audience of 6,000. The Wordless Music Orchestra and Louis Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers performed along with them while the film glowed bright on the biggest outdoor screen in the city.
And then there was this surprise visit from a special guest conductor...
The Creators Project produced a series of in depth videos on Beasts of the Southern Wild including featurettes on the Aurochs, cinematography and soundtrack. While you can find them posted throughout our blog, we thought it would be nice to view them all on one page/post. Enjoy! MAKING OF BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD PART I

You won't have to wait long to see our girl, Quvenzhané Wallis, back on the big screen.
Industry blog, The Wrap, reports that Quvenzhané has been cast in the lead role of Annie in a remake to be produced by "James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith through Overbrook Entertainment, and by Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith through Marcy Media". The film will be directed by Will Gluck whose credits include Easy A and Friends with Benefits.
Congrats to Quvenzhané!
Quvenzhané Wallis was featured in People Magazine's Salute to the Oscar Nominees photo spread alongside actors Robert DeNiro, Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain, Sally Field, Anne Hathaway and more.
What a cutie. That is all.
