Let's see if Breslin continues the girls' streak, or if Smith or another can edge out a win!
We'll be flexible with what qualifies, but the rule of thumb will be about 16 or under at the time of the performance.
The poll will be open for at least 36 hours.
My 2006 vote: Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine (just rewatched this and adored her as much as ever- movie still holds up!)
Runner-up: Jayden Smith, The Pursuit of Happyness (he'd be my runaway winner any other year)
