Youngest Oscar Winner

Who’s currently the youngest person who has won an Acadamy award for acting (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor or Best Supporting Actress)?

Note that I’m not talking about who was the youngest when he or she won.

In other words, if you got all the people who have won an Oscar for acting in a room today, who would be the youngest person in the room?

I’m guessing it’s Anna Paquin at 19 (born July 24, 1982).

Yes, that would be it. Angelina Jolie (26) and Hillary Swank (27) would be next in line.


I believe Kate Winslet is the youngest to ever receive multiple nominations (three), though she’s never won.
