Born on August 15, 1990, Jennifer Lawrence is so far the youngest Oscar nominee and winner (barely) older than IMDb. 

For which of the six Oscar-nominated actresses and actor younger than IMDb, do you predict the first Oscar win?

Tough cuz all are extremely talented but I'd say Saoirse Ronan has the best shot; already 2 nominations under her belt and a handful of big roles coming up for her. Her time may be imminent!

I don't think most of them are on course to have a chance of ever winning an OScar. Saorsie Ronan seems like the safest bet. I really don't know much about Lucas Hedges as I have not seen his oscar nominee role or anything else he has been in, so I'll leave him tentatively in second place.

I made that poll because I thought I'd have at least 10 actors on the list, then I was like "huh? only 6?"... I mean if IMDb was 27 in 1980, the list would have featured Jodie Foster, Timothy Hutton, Isabelle Adjani, Justin Henry, Linda Blair, Tatum O'Neal, Cathy Moriarty, Diana Scarwid, Mariel Hemingway, Quinn Cummings, Peter Firth, Michael O'Keefe and Leslie Browne. Of course, not all of them had transcending careers but still 13 Oscar-nominated actors under 27, and only 6 today. Seems like it's getting harder for youngsters

You missed Jacob Tremblay from Room (2015). Most promising kid since Haley Joel Osment (and I think he is going to fare far better!)

Charlye',

He wasn't actually Oscar-nominated (crazy thinking about it now, he was outstanding!)

You could add Yalitza Aparicio, who is said to be born in 1993.
