We all know 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest-ever best actress Oscar nominee. But what about the youngest nominee of all time? That record is still held by Justin Henry after more than 30 years.
At the tender age of 8, Henry was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in "Kramer vs. Kramer," a tale of divorce starring Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman.
"I got into acting relatively accidentally," Henry tells Yahoo!, also admitting that he had no idea at that age the scope of impact the famed awards show had.
Think you recognize Henry from something else? He also played Samantha's annoying little brother, Mike, in "Sixteen Candles." One of his most memorable lines (said to Molly Ringwald as Sam): "Sofa City, Sweetheart."
