25 Acting Oscar-Nominations at the Age of 25 ...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IMDb! (PS: THIS IS NOT A 'FAVORITE MOVIE' POLL) Would you believe it but by a delightful coincidence, 25 actors (in fact 22 actresses and 3 actors) have been nominated to an acting Oscar in the year of their 25th birthday, and seven of them won. This called for a poll, but not any question for that poll. There's one extremely popular movie from IMDb Top 250 and most of the movies listed wouldn't stand a chance in a vote of popularity, so the question is : Which of these performances, and subsequently movies, would you be the most curious or eager to DISCOVER if you were given the chance to pick one? Discuss here PS: the years are not the years of release, but nominations, and of course, they had to be alive that year, this is why James Dean is absent from the list, as he died at the age of 24.
