It's always really cute when a child star meets their favorite celebrity!
Only 9-years-old, Quvenzhane is the youngest actress ever to be nominated for an Oscar, and just 1 of 10 African Americans in the same category before her.
Quvenzhane's acting in Beasts of the Southern Wild will surely take her far - after all, she is nowhere near legal and her amazing talent is already being recognized by the greatest - even Oprah and Essence Magazine!
At Essence's 6th Annual Black Women In Hollywood awards luncheon, she told the crowd:
"I am humbled by this day. There’s nothing better than being honored by your own.”
Wow, she is one well-spoken kid.
In the gallery below, check out the child superstar as she gets to hang out with the one and only Halle for a few moments!
